#9 of 25 Motif Challenge

So much to blog about today.

Thank You to everyone who commented in my previous blog where I asked is the join the first half of the ds, how to hid new threads added during a project and hiding the tails. I want to make sure I am doing everything exactly right and sometimes I second guess myself. So again Thank You to everyone.

Yesterday my sister, Anita, showed me Google Reader. I have been checking people's blogs 2 or 3 times a day (I'm not a stalker I promise, :-), I'm just afraid of missing something!) What Google Reader does is it lets me know when a new post has been added to everyone's blogs. It is going to save me hours at the computer, :-) . Seriously if you aren't familiar with this or a program like it I highly recommend it.

Also yesterday I spent a large portion of the day making jam. It was a rainy day here in Western NY, so standing over the stove wasn't so bad. I got alot accomplished though, I made a batch each of Strawberry and Raspberry Rhubarb jams. Today I will finish up the jam for this year and make a batch of Cherry Rhubarb. We could NEVER eat that much jam, so I really make it all with the intentions of giving most of it away. Although it never fails that before next Rhubarb season I will have given so much away that we go quite a while with out any until I can make more.

Anyway, I didn't get a chance to start Jane's TIAS3 yesterday. But I will do it today.

Lastly here is #9 of my 25 Motif Challenge.


This pattern is called "Heart's Desire" by Susan K. Fuller. The pattern can be found here. I made this for my friend Rose's birthday and tacked it onto the front of a blank card to use as her birthday card. I thought it only fitting to use Yarnplayer's size 30 "Roses" HDT. I first saw this motif on TattingChic's blog.

I would like to continue to invite everyone to comment on my previous blog "Tatting Question". I am very interested to hear how YOU tat.

Happy Tatting,

Bonnie

Your "Heart's Desire" is beautiful! I really like the effect with "Roses". I've printed out the pattern, so I guess I should try it!

Your Hearts Desire heart turned out so lovely! Beautifully done, Bonnie! I think it is so sweet that you made it out of Yarnplayers' HDT called "Rose" how sweet and sentimental. Your jam sounds yummy. I wish I lived closer...so I could be on the receiving end of that jam...yummy.

P.S. I don't think you're a stalker at all. Melissa over at HoneyBeesBliss turned me onto the google reader It's great. I've just got to figure out how to get the button onto the sidebar of my blog. Melissa has one on hers.

I had looked at Google Reader a while back, but hadn't done anything with it. Now, I'm up and running! Not only that, I've customized my iGoogle page... it's so pretty now! Thanks for the inspiration!

P.S. - Blog stalkers unite! ; )
