Year of the Dragon

Chinese New Year 2024 falls on Saturday, February 10th, 2024, and celebrations culminate with the Lantern Festival on February 24th, 2024. Celebrations last up to 16 days, but only the first 7 days are considered a public holiday. 


These are just a few of the dragons I have tatted.  I also tatted Jane E. TIAS dragon and a little Paprika.

Bobbie's Pincushion

There is a lot going on here. The pincushion was designed by Sharon J. She designed it after "Bobbie's Pincushion".  Bobbie Demmers original pincushion had a crochet center but Sharon started with a SCMR in honor of Gary H.  Sharon taught her design at the fall 2023 Camp Wannatat workshop.  

Kits were provided to complete the cushion.  I started that center so many times and in the end finished four pincushion tops.  The thread used for this one is a  Hakelgarn size 20. I love how the Hen and Chicks edging sits beyond the cushion.  

I don't sew much or well but am pleased with how this one came out. My plan is to use it in a gift exchange later this month.

Just a few more, this time in my colors. These would be great stocking stuffers.

Coronation Flowers


Just a few flowers made with Coronation Cord.  The  cord  had been dyed yellow first. 

Yes,  I messed up the centers but not too bad for a first try. I put a dab of Frey Check on the cut cord to keep them from unravelling too much. I think a bead sewn in the center will make these flowers pop.
