About Me

My photo
Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 54 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, jewelry making, stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

Monday’s card challenge on the Outlawz was to create a project with a vintage feel. Nothing feels more like vintage than a pretty piece of tatting….and nothing says vintage worse than a misshapen piece. This heart is terrible but it wasn’t my fault…really…the pattern had two mistakes in it!


  1. This card is absolutely gorgeous Joan!

  2. To someone that knows nothing about tatting I can't see anything wrong with this STUNNER.

  3. Enlarged your card, and must not know what I'm looking for, cause I sure don't see any 'awful mistakes' in it. It looks gorgeous to me, and love your cream lace trim & pretty rose too. This card perfectly fills the bill for the 'vintage feel', and I think you did an awesome job. Nice to see you posting again. I've got to get something done for Outlawz, but been trying to clean up & organize my stamp area & supplies. Plus keep a card ready to post occasionally! Hope all things are well with you. See you soon. TFS. And Happy New Year.
