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?

Tutorials for the Celtic Knotted Picot

Here are the two tutorials I put together while
 working on my pattern,
 Their Five Year Mission. 
(Posted 3/14/15)

The Celtic Knotted Picot was created by Bina Madden and is taught here: http://paradisetreasures.com/ckp.html I was very grateful to be one of her students one year when she taught at the Finger Lakes Tatting Conference as she shared her technique.

  1. Nice job on the tutorial. As an added 'bonus,' your hands look nice, too - graceful. :-)

  2. Thank you,Stephanie! That is such a sweet compliment!

  3. Great pictorial ! I have completed the Star Trek bangle (sans bangle at the moment) & will send a pic across to the HW blog after it is blocked & photographed.
    Thanks for sharing the pattern - I enjoyed my first foray into CKPs :-)

  4. I'm glad you enjoyed the Celtic Knotted Picots! I look forward to seeing a picture of your project done from my pattern--That will be a first for me!


I love comments from my readers!
