He knows my name!

My life verse: "I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel." (Isaiah 45:3). For me, "the treasures of darkness" has been the medically-treated depression that I have suffered off and on with for years. More than anything else in my life, I think this has made me realize how much my Savior loves me and has deepened my relationship with God. The "hidden riches of secret places" are my wonderful family and this fabulous craft--tatting! I thank God for both!
I think it is awesome that God knows my name! Did you know that He knows yours?

Leap Day Earrings

On Leap Day 2012 (February 29), Georgia Seitz' Online Tatting Class had a special tatting event.  The pattern was by Nina Libin, the creator of Beanile Lace (see her work and some free patterns at http://www.beanile.com/ ).  Nina was the guest teacher that day.  She talked us through her pattern, Hearts #3.  Although most of her patterns are traditionally done with metallic thread, I did mine in Lizbeth, size 20, color 671 (Christmas Red).  The beads are Bead Treasures brand from Hobby Lobby--size 11, color Opaque White Luster.  These earrings go great with my red and white striped dress!
