I lost this darned post! I think I started it on my iPad, and finished it on my laptop. I didn't save it on the iPad, and when I went back POOF. Just the photos remained. I have a love/hate relationship with technology sometimes. We'll see, now I'll probably end up with two posts.
In summary - this snowflake is from somewhere on the Internet - I'd love to give credit if anyone knows where I got this?
This is my first attempt at Frivole's Snowdrop. This is a GREAT pattern, but my tatting is needing some better concentration to avoid small mistakes.
So much for keeping this one for Christmas - gifted already to a retiring coworker with a large Christmas tree. I think of her when I see or make ornaments, so it was fitting!
And I can't duplicate the story of this coat :( BUT, this beautiful red wool liner was given to me to use the wool. I took it apart and washed it to felt the wool.
I made this bag (surprised?) I followed the pattern, but found that he straps are too long for my taste. The loop button closure is a bit too thick, so I'm not sure if it will be good to use, or fumbly. I saved the tag from the coat and put it in the pocket to add some decoration. A great bag for someone I think, I just don't need another. SO, I offered it back to my aunt, who gave me the wool.
As it turns out, the bag will go back to my aunts friend - the woman who gave up the wool in the first place. I can't wait to hear how she likes it. It was her mother's coat!
And now, I have more beautiful red wool to use somehow. The color just screams Christmas!
P.S. And how weird is it that comments from the lost post remained? It's not even Monday.
