Victorian Charm

  • New Tatted Lace Wrist Cuff 
I found out some exciting news this past week!  I teach piano and one student that I teach is putting his lessons to good use.  Three years ago, he started piano with me and had never played before.  I knew right away that he had a special talent and he went through his lesson books very fast.  Three years later (in fact, last week) he tried out for his Jazz Band in high school.  He was picked to play the keyboard for the  Jazz Band!  And he has only been playing for three years!  I feel like I have done my job as a teacher.  So many students don't keep up with their playing through the years, and I talk to them as adults and they always say they wished they had continued with their lessons.  But, it's never too late.  I also have a 62 year-old student who is doing very well and wants to teach her grandchildren.  

Just thought I'd add my latest creation.  One of my readers suggested that I start making lace cuffs along with my notebook covers.  So, here is a new one.  I tried making satin flowers yesterday and found I really like making them, also.  I have already sold one cuff to my reader and I'm on to my next one that is featured on my Etsy (

Fantastic that you recognized your student's talent and encouraged him. Sometimes, encouragement is what one really needs.

Love the cuffs....wonderful with a fresh flower for a prom or special occasion.
