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.

Tatting/Flowers

The Mod Squad challenge http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/ for this week was to use a flower as your focal point.  It's been over a year since I did any tatting so I decided to add that to my background.  My friend Judy encouraged me to do it even though I'd forgotten some of the basics. All the papers I used were created on my computer.  The beautiful flowered piece is a Gina K freebie.  Thanks for looking.

  3. This is so stunning Joan! Glad you dusted off your tatting needle, you always do such a gorgeous job. Sorry I dropped the ball with our little side challenge. As you know, I have been rather busy and just threw a couple of things together today. Your colors are just beautiful, as always.

    1. Thanks Ina, It had been so long since I did any tatting I had to read how to begin. Once it came back I remembered why I liked doing it so much. Thanks again for the lovely comment.
