Just proof I still tat. Thanks to all who have sent messages of Hello and Season's greetings! A few ornaments I made last year but never posted and a few new ones. One author I missed remembering...will check again and update as I can!! . My tree can freak the heck outa ya when the lights go out!! I forgot I am the Queen of Glow in the Dark! One night this week I turned out the lights then the tree last! BAM!! Half the tree seems to glow in the dark! I love that the tree will continue to glow for an hour!
I have made some knitted items for Christmas but can't tell you yet because the recipients have not seen them! I can't wait until one person sees the scarf I spun from fiber then knitted in to a scarf! I am so addicted!! Ya think a wheel is in my future? No, not really. I think I really like the mechanics of doing it on the spindle. Have a few knew spindles I will post later.
Have a joyous holiday. I TRULY hope to podcast soon. If not before it is my New Year resolution to get an organized system going. I would love to try some interviews . Any volunteers? Until later, Merry Christmas

I have posted this before but wanted to show the white glow in the dark again. The thread is FuFu Glow-in the Dark from http://www.sewingsupplywarehouse.com/fufglowindar.html Sewing Supply Warehouse. I LOVE it! This season I am going to make a couple simple hankies for my mom as well. She really likes them...or so she says...she would never say no! This Glow-In-The dark fiber REALLY glows a long time.

WELL!! Long time no see!! I have been busy with my job and some restructuring there that meant I needed to change some duties and some hours around. I am basically 9-5 but some days it is earlier and somedays later!! I actually have been tatting but you saw that pic before! It is the pink edging still. BUT I am starting my Christmas tatting with some ornaments and maybe a doily? I am going to use some of the millions of beads I have acquired and will show some pics as soon as I get going!

Weeeellllllll, Biter had his Rabies shot this weekend so he can officially be around my other kitties. I have accepted the Biter wants to be here, but I wonder about his "other Mommy!" I think he goes to the other place but certainly not today! He came to the door, meowed until we opened the door, went right to the bathroom where he had been secluded looking for his food. Five hours later he is still in the same spot on the couch. Did not even move when I turned on the sweeper. Maybe it is Stockholm Syndrome! The pic is of him lookin in from my flower bed.
I started a new edging patten. I think I have done it before but am not sure. I actually think someone out there in tatting land got it as an exchange. I am making it from Tatted Hankerchiefs (Nikolajsen). It will go with a hanky DD gave me for my birthday she found at a antique shop.
The other pic is my new fav carry case for tatting. Found it at TJ Maxx. Yeah TJ!

So, I will work on this new project and see how I do. I also like this new yarn. SO...I think I will work a wee bit more on my stole then, I think I will start a new bookmark, or that edging I mentioned...I have an itch but am not sure where to start.

I finished my RPM's. Don't pay attention to the heels not matching! I ALWAYS match a cut and start in tatting so the threads don't look off! However, I did not notice until I was done that the cuff on one is green and the other pink! Frickety-frack! Ah well, who cares!
My cat Coffee always sits on my printer while I am at the desk so he got his pic taken today! He says Hi!
I am currently working on bookmarks. Next is the woven picot bookmark by Marrie Stoffer. http://www.celticdreamweaver.com/bookmark.htmThe needle (knitting) are working on Juno Regina at http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall07/PATTjunoregina.html And Cascading Leaves from Favorite Socks
I have finished one and hope I will not succumb to second sock syndrome!
To the right you will note a new episode of my podcast. Let me know what you think privately at firstname.lastname@example.org or on this site. Thanks for listening!

The National Heart Foundation recommends eating Arlene at least three times a week!
Forty percent of the world's almonds and twenty percent of the world's peanuts are used in the manufacture of Arlene.
Arlene once lost a Dolly Parton lookalike contest.
All swans in England belong to Arlene.
Arlene is actually a fruit, not a vegetable!
Arlene can remain conscious for fifteen to twenty seconds after being decapitated!
Arlene is the world's tallest woman.
The most dangerous form of Arlene is the bicycle.
Arlene has 118 ridges around the edge.
If you blow out all the candles on Arlene with one breath, your wish will come true!

I will be talking about what I am working on, how I tat and work and knit. I also have a couple of FOs to post tomorrow if I can. They might be for exchanges so I might wait on that!
Enjoy your weekend!!
Addendum 3/1/08: I checked itunes and Arlene Tats and knits is on board. Don't know why it has not popped up here yet. It should automatically update. I will check back. But if you have itunes it is there as well as the above link!

Errata: I think I said Sue Hanson was the coordinator of the exchanges. Dummy, that would be Mary Donahue who can be found at Icela's world. Sorry! I need to take better notes!
