New Supplies

I know that I have been really absent from posting my work.  I have been working on all different kinds of things so don't worry!  I have 2 picture afghans going on right now along with some tatting that I have been working on.

I decided last week that I was a good girl and went to the Handy Hands website and got myself a few new things.  I hope this was the motivation that I needed to get my butt in gear and start working on more stuff.  I have my eye on that Candy Cane!  I got some of the new thread that was just released as well.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week......Ill post some work soon!

Puppies, Puppies and more Puppies

Thing have been a little crazy.  I wanted to let you know that I was a little unprepared for when my dog had her babies.  She had the puppies and wanted nothing to do with cleaning them up or the cords.  Well that left me to do all the work.  I didn't have my OB kit that I have when I am at work so I had to fall back onto something that we were told we could use when I was in EMT class as a last resort.  Some sort of thread/shoe string.  I used size 40 thread to tie off and cut the cords on all the babies.  All are doing well and mommy is doing great with the babies.  Here are some pictures of them.

Santa came late but well worth the wait!

Santa had come late to my house this year.  I was blessed with a lot of Tatting supplies.  I am very thankful for my gift that I got.  I as started trying to tat with size 40 thread.  I have been working with it, but not much to show for right now.  

I have to say that I LOVE the tread holder and if you don't have one yet its well worth the money!
 I know that this is a lot of thread but I have to say that I will be set for a very long time.

Life has got away from me

I know it has been a long time since I have posted on here.  It is as simple as life has got away from me.  Everything has been a roller coaster for me and I have been trying to hold everything together as much as I can.  I was able to get this lil guy done before Christmas.  I can't remember what pattern it is or where I have got the pattern from.  I will still share it.

Tea and Tatting Tuesday......

I recently started drinking tea from Teavana.  I have found a few teas that I have fallen in love with.  I wanted to share a few of the combinations that I have been drinking. 

The first one is.....  Sakura Allure Green Tea - Description:  Elegantly cut bamboo is the base of this enchanting green tea blend, enhancing the clean refreshing taste of cherry, pineapple, mango, rose and hibiscus. The Kyoto temple's Sakura blossoms in full bloom make the spiritual coupling of floral and fruit come alive as rose and hibiscus intertwine with lively cherry, mango and candied pineapple. SUPERFRUIT ENHANCED

Mixed with

The second on is....  Weight To Go! Pu-erh Tea - Description:  Enticing, tantalizing and truly energizing this rosy blush blend of pu-erh black and green oolong teas merge to create an intoxicating mix of sweet fruit with bright mint. Sweet strawberries and golden delicious apples swirl into peppermint and spearmint and create guilt-free, slimful beauty inside and out. SUPERFRUIT ENHANCED

I have a 16 oz cup of this every morning now and it has helped decrease my appitate.  I am not as hungry anymore.  The taste is amazing along with the smell.  I have taken a few pictures of my morning tea to share with you as well.

Tea in Tins

The second flavor of tea that I drink are Blueberry Bliss Rooibos Tea and Strawberry Lemonade Herbal Tea.  This is an amazing combination as well.  Take the time and look at the website.  I have got several of my co-workers drinking this now. 

As far as what's on my shuttles I am working on another heart.  I will post it when I have it done.
