Merry Christmas

Its a beautiful and sunny Christmas Day here at my cottage.  I'm just sitting outside on the deck enjoying the warmer weather and watching the wildlife.
I hope all of you are enjoying the holidays with family and friends.

More pins

I am restoring this hairpin doily for a friend.  She inherited it from a relative and wants to keep it for her daughter.  The knots closing a few rounds have come undone so I used invisible thread to mend the rounds.  I washed the doily and started pinning it out but 50 pins are not enough.  So tomorrow I will stop at wool-tyme to pick up more pins.  The outside round wants to bunch so I'm going to pin each section to get a smoother result.  So maybe I'll buy 2 packs of pins.

Ice drop with tassel

I'm still making ice drops.  I started to add tassels for fun. The best part about the ice drops is that even when you make mistakes they still turn out.
