Blessings from Toll-Way-Tatters

I don't have all of you, please check out my page and add me.  Then  I can check out your work, I love seeing what new ideas eachone has.
I received these Tue.. The card and Cross were such a Blessing from ya'll, thank you all so very much!

My son brought in the mail today Fri. and there was a little box,  with the name Carol Perry and Toll-Way-Tatters this is what I found inside.  Thank you so much.  These shuttles have become my favorites, I love it all, I just made up some tye dyed threads and already have an idea for the silver doo- daad.  I needed more bobbins and your timing was great!  I just want ya'll to know that you've lifted my spirits when I need it most.  God Bless All of you.  Praying for a safe Christimas for you and your family.

Messed up pieces placed for show

Still working on these
 I've taken all my mistakes (most all) and after Sue and I had talked back sometime ago about fixing some cloths to display our work, I came up with this,  My trade mark is glow in the dark paint, to glue them on and desided to add some flare to them and make designs out of mistakes.  Might I recomend that if you try this don't dry in the dryer as it dries out the paint and it starts peeling off, I hang them up to air dry so they last.  I love to design my own so you may not see to many patterns done by me as I have always done my own ideas.  Always for as long as I can remember (even as a child) have come up with my own ideas.  It's not that I don't know how to read patterns, just don't like to copy others as it seems to take away from my creating.  Have a Blessed day.
(I feel the need to explain something to ya'll) I know I've already posted that my daddy has blood cancer and is dying, he doesn't have much longer with us so I really haven't been doing alot of tatting, am however tring to get one special Christmas gift finished).

tatted ring

25 challenge # 19
Found this ring and thought that would be beautiful tatted.  I was wrong!!  Waiting on my size 40 to arrive then I'll do it again.  I used size 20 Lizbeth thread white and Autum orange, thought about making little bee's but just not diggin this one at all.  Guess I'll wait and see what comes of it.  Maybe I'll do another one and wear it on the other hand as a hand warmer.  JK.
