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?

Finger Lakes 2013 Part 3

I have enjoyed Ginny Weather's 12 Ornaments of Christmas (Books 1 & and 2).  I have worked from her designs when making ornaments for all those who receive tatted items from me at Christmas time.  She is a gracious lady who shares her talents with those around her very patiently and willingly.  This fun doily pattern she shared with us at Finger Lakes came complete with cute little jewelry findings.  She had several different kinds...some circles--some flat, copper, gold, mine were square, silver and 3-D.  She explained that her pattern could be adapted to smaller findings by adapting the size of the rings and chains in the pattern.  Ginny even went a step farther by emailing us after class--photos of the doily in different stages of progress, to help us as we completed our work.  What a sweet lady!

My doily is done in Lizbeth, size 20.  The color is # 120- Caribbean.  It is not blocked yet.  I plan on framing it, eventually.


  1. It's been great to read about your experiences at Finger Lakes!
