A day is what you make of it, each holds adventures in anything you do just depends on how you look at it. Laugh each day,live life like it's your last. Smile & make others wonder what you know that they don't. Know it's ok to think outside the box when making crafts. I'm glad that I've listened to the advise of my good friend Judith C. about,"Living the Dream!" Cause I am.

Holly Cows, it's that tatted cross bookmark !!!
I almost fell off my chair today when I was reading one of the several workbasket books I had gotten lately. For in March of 1953 on page 49 & 50 was a shocker of surprise! You see my late husband's grandmother lived with us until she passed away in our home. We took care of her in her time of most need. No, she didn't teach me how to tat. She made him one of these crosses & one of the flags in these books too. Anyhow I don't think anyone knew it but the cross they all believed she had made up the pattern for, was actually a pattern out of this book. I was shocked when it hit me like a ton of brickes. I do fell blessed to have a copy of this pattern. For you see she used to make several of the patterns from the workbasket books.
