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?

Shirt Back-from This 'n' Tat

The very first "button" patterns that I did, before I settled on the idea of using purples and making "many" different motifs and decorating my shirt with them were patterns by Lisa C. Trumble from her website www.thisnthat.com   Her website was one of the first ones I discovered when I had access to tatting on the internet. 


 I did them in order...  The next was her Button Flower II.  I found this at

This one is was found at http://www.thisntat.com/medallions/button_flower3.html  It was worked emptying leftover bobbins and had several ends to be worked in--which gives it its wonky shape.

I am looking forward to finishing my Finger Lakes projects so I can post them.  I still am falling asleep tatting, and this week came down with pneumonia and did no tatting at all--so it may take awhile!


  1. I think they are fun to make and need to make some, great post!

  2. The tatting is cute. I hadn't seen those patterns in a long time.
    So sorry you are sick! Hope you get well soon.

  3. Lovely button patterns, I don't think I have seen these before.
    I hope you get better soon, take care don't go over doing it.


I love comments from my readers!
