We wish our beloved Georgia a very Happy Birthday (last week) and many happy tatting hours!

This week we will be busy with several patterns:

Ninetta bracelets using curly rings

Also these little butterflies with bugle beads pattern that might be good little gifts for Spring holidays.

And a special request for a review of the Spencer Doily by Sen.
