I just realized that this is my 400th post. So I guess it's a magical post - and Giveaway Time!
I'm giving away three Workbasket magazines. I've chosen them for their good tatting patterns. The issues are May 1954, October 1963 and January 1969.
As you can see, one has a lovely tatted doily on the cover. and there are other tatted items within each. Plus - you can make this cool sweater for your guy! Looks straight from Star Trek! The magazine from 1963 shows you how to make a swell earring holder using a bedspring coil, which I'm sure you'll all be clamoring for.
But wait - there's more! You'll receive recipes ("Line six muffin tins with bacon pieces..."), a pattern for knitted hooded scarf that will make you look like an elf, and a Holiday Glass Muff pattern!
Can you stand it? Do you feel the LOVE?
There will be some other items included, probably beads and thread. I'm not sure yet. Editor's discretion. No refunds, no take-backs.
I'll pick a winner after August 31 using a random number generator.
Here are the rules: comment on this post. That's it. No blogging about it is necessary (though you certainly can if you want to). No begging, no offering of treats will sway me. However, I can be influenced by anyone wishing to permanently remove a 23 year old nerd from my basement.
Speaking of Larry, here's his latest tableau. I think it's pretty funny.
Vader doesn't care about Larry's toys. Here he is napping with DH.
So comment! Because you could be cooking Creole Weiners soon!
