What's Doing Wednesday

The greengate blanket is slowly growing, row by row with a  row or two being added each day.  I'm now 22 rows into the second part with 63 rows to go.  This is a really large project but one I am loving.  I've been searching around looking for pillow patterns to complement this.

My CAL doily from Stitchy McFloss has 10 rows to go.  Its such a lovely doily and a wonderful size.  Hope to have this completed soon.

Now, I've been looking for some cross stitch charts to work on when I have discovered needle tatting!  I have always wanted to learn tatting but found the shuttle somewhat difficult.  Last Sunday visiting with a dear friend and her cousin I found the cousin making tatted wreaths and with a needle.  She has graciously offered to teach me.  I also found this book by Barbara Foster.  Very well written and easy to understand.    It comes with 4 needles too.  Needless to say, I'm quite excited to learn this and add to my thread addiction!

Today's agenda will have to be readjusted with a quick trip to see the doc.  I have shingles.  Realized this last night and hope I can catch this before it goes to far.

And that's what's doing on my Wednesday.  Hope that your day is a good one.



  1. Your greengate blanket is looking very nice so far - love the colors. I hope everything goes well at the Dr's and that you feel better soon. :)

  2. Love the blanket! Oh, tatting has always been something I wanted to try as well. I might have to look into that. :)

    I am sending prayers for you today that the dr will be able to give you something to heal your shingles.

    Blessings to you always dearest friend.

  3. Blanket is beautiful. Oh, I hope you don't have shingles Glor, I hear that can be really painful. Blessings to you :)

  4. Good luck with the needle tatting. It is easier than the shuttle for me. Hope you feel better.

  5. Love your greengate blanket..Wow big accomplishment.

  6. Oh my goodness...hope you're able to keep those shingles under control. Nasty stuff, it is. Love your blanket. The colors are so delightful! Take care, Gloria!

  7. Hope you're able to keep those shingles under control. Nasty stuff, it is. Love your blanket. The colors are just delightful! Take care of yourself!

  8. oh my..shingles are quite painful, hopefully you caught it early enough. I took a tatting class using shuttles..once you get the hang of it, it is easy. I have never tried the needle tatting..I just may have to give it a go. Blanket looks wonderful. Blessings

  9. Hi Glor, lovely blanket .. I have never tried needle tatting only with a shuttle and didn't have much success... So maybe the needle is the way to go .. Looking forward to a pic when you start :))
    All the best at the doctors..
    hugs pat :))
