Ces said...

I heard you were having a party and you were giving presents, so I came but I found this interesting word "tat". Is that short for tattle? :)

Huge congratulations on your 100th post, and on being such a fantastic blogging friend. I always love popping by and seeing what's going on on your blog, and the pictures of your tatting are always so pretty. I love the heart. Love the cake as well - no chance of a slice of that, I guess, as it'll be long gone by now no doubt. LOL.
It's a very generous giveaway. I'd love to enter if I may.

I don't usually get fussed by give aways, but I NEED that book! Maybe it will provide some help in untangling my fingers!

Riet said...

NOw I know what tatting is and I love the look of it. To tell you the truth I had never seen this before, I don't know if we have this art in Holland but then it must be with another name. I must go to a craft shop and see what they have there. Have a great give away. Riet

snowy said...

I will add my congratulations, because I too enjoy your blog, and so best wishes for the next 100 posts!

Tumbleweed Trails said...

Congratulations on your blogversary and reaching your
100th post! That calls for a celebration for sure. Your cake is beautiful as is the party hat you won. Your selections for your two prizes are splendid. Every since I came across an Antique Tatting Shuttle at an auction I have always wanted to learn to tat. I will spend countless hours learning to tat if I am the lucky winner. How exciting. With this being a double celebration did you do two happy dances? Three if you add in winning the fabulous party hat.

I'm really sorry, though, I left a finger trail in the cake icing. It was just too tasty to resist! ;)

Maggie Ann said...

Congratulations from me also on your Anniversary...blogging is such fun isn't it! Did you really make that wonderful dream of a cake? Its gorgeous and your party hat is sweet. I've never seen a thread holder like that before. How gracious of you to have a give-a-way. Yes, I am having a hard time finding Mary K.'s books. I had the brilliant idea of getting them using the Interlibrary loan system...well. only none of the librarys' have any. Thanks for steering me to Handy Hands. Maybe later this summer I'll treat myself. I've got so many tatting and knitting books as is...I feel guilty buying another. I was quite taken with your M.K. heart though. I've used Manuela thread before..its really nice to work with.

Suzie said...

Congratulations on your anniversary!
And what a lovely cake to celebrate with your friends! Your talents are endless!!

I've always wanted to learn how to tat, and especially after a woman gave me a snowflake ornament in a doctor's waiting room at the Mayo Clinic!

I've gotten a book or two, and with your inspiration, one of these days, I'll tackle a new adventure!

Your blog is beautiful! Thanks for providing a day brightner!

Stephanie said...

Kathy Niklewicz said...

First of all – a big CONGRATULATIONS!
And what a yummy-looking and beautifully decorated CAKE!
I’m seeing a tatting pattern there – very creative!

Your incredible blog is SO MUCH MORE than ‘just’ a blog! Your sidebar is an electronic TATTING ENCYCLOPEDIA – all in one convenient location! It’s literally a ONE-STOP TATTING WEBSITE, which includes possibly every tatting BLOG, an incredible number of quickly accessible tatting PATTERNS, tatting TUTORIALS, and tatting SHOPS! And – oh yes – YOUR OWN TATTING is spectacular, too!!! And if that’s not enough, you’ve added an amazing number of OTHER creative blog sites, whose writers then also learn about tatting, and we learn about their wonderful crafts.

Also, the CONTENT of your blog is so informative and creatively (and humorously) written, accompanied by wonderful photos. (I’ll never forget your scary Halloween story!)

I honestly don’t know how you find time to do all that you do, including commenting on EVERYONE’S blogs! I remember being thrilled and honored when you first commented on my blog – and then regularly began doing so!

Gosh, I’ve got to sign off now, but I could go on and on! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!"

Shirl said...

"Hello, I found my way to you through Bunny Rose Cottage. Congrats on your 100th post. What a beautiful cake. Love your tatting. That's one thing I have not tried yet but inherited my husbands Great Aunt's sewing supplies and a tin of tatting was in it. I thought I might blog on it one day. I've left it just as she had it. So sweet!
Bless you, Shirl

Oksy, I'm back... let's try this again ;) Merci for copying my comment sweetie!

"Oh my goodness, look at all these people entering your giveaway. Count me in too (and thanks for the invite!). That cake is so, so pretty too!

Sammy Girl said...


I just found you from a comment on another blog. And you have cake and party hats! It looks like I am here just in time for the party!

Would love to know how to get the "side banner" on your blog.

While I don't tat - I LOVE the craft and have MANY vintage "Modern Pricsilla" Magazines that highlight hand work.

Thanks for sharing your party with me and feel free to drop by and visit my new blog if you have a chance.
