Being a Good Girl ...and Name Change?

I decided to be a good girl and do a post!  :-)  I figured that, since I mentioned the blanket/bed cover, I should share a picture...
That was a few weeks ago... I'm nearly finished with the second row (I've been thinking in blocks of nine... 35 blocks sounds a lot less daunting than 315 motifs...).  Of course, I got bored.  I think mainly because of stopping to hide ends. *rolls eyes*  the pile of 'stuff' in the background are our comforters (we don't share... we're both cover-hogs).  I needed them out of my way and I was hoping they'd dull down the light a bit...  

Anyway, here's a closer picture of the motifs:
I'm using Caron Simply Soft yarn in Soft Blue and Grey Heather and, of course, one of my Rosewood tatting needles from Lacis!  :-D  The pattern is "Rosebud Refreshment Set" from The Tatter's Treasure Chest Edited by Mary Carolyn Waldrep.  Yup, you might see coasters, I saw a blanket. LOL. (It was actually my second choice of pattern... the first didn't work with the yarns I bought so I ended up using the colors I'd bought for a scarf for myself... Grr...  No scarf for me, it seems. LOL.). 

Now, the name change thing... I'm probably going to change the name of this blog to 'Sapphire & Grace' as that's the name of my Facebook page.  :-)  They should match, right?  Just lettin' you gals and guys(?) know now.  :-)  

Well, I'm working on a bracelet that I want to see finished (I love it in y head, LOL).  Happy tatting to all an to all a good night! ;-)

With love,
Stephanie Grace

Still here.... :-)

I am still here ... and still tatting!  I stopped with the crosses at like 22 or something and went onto other things --I just couldn't handle the redundancy anymore, I guess... :-/

Anywho, I promise a real post soon, but I wanted to post this link so I don't lost it...  Has anyone tried this???  I would LOVE to know how this works with tatting! LOL.  :-)

BTW, I'm working with my rosewood tatting needles!!!  :-)  Trying out a blanket for Hubby --He says blanket, I say decorative afghan.  I know that it'll get destroyed when he uses it and won't be very warm, but if he keeps him from complaining about me tatting too much, I'm willing to give it a go! LOL.  ;-)

Love to all and Happy Tatting!!!

P.S. Don't think my lack of posting is lack of reading; I'm much better at staying up-to-date with YOUR blogs than I am my own! *blushes*
