Back again

Well it has been 2 months since I last loged in and a lot has happened.But unfortunatlly not a lot of tatting.
First of all we ended up becoming camp hosts at Karijini National Park for the month of July, great experience and meet lots of lovely people. We had no sooner finished  when we were called back to Bunbury to help our daughter.
I've also been doing lots of knitting of jumpers and crocheted blankets!!
 The two motifs were done in late june but didn't have any internet for the months of  June July.
These will be no's 18& 19.

We are just about ready to head north again to some warmer weather. It is 5 weeks since my mum passed away and we have finally tieded up everything that had to be done.
So here is 4 more motifs toward my challenge! That takes my total to 17!!
I took my tatting to show my 5 1/2 yr old granddaughter and she claimed nearly all of it!! she loves craft and has always loved balls of wool. The first thing she always asks is what have I made for her?? As I have crocheted and knitted for her since befor she was born. Might have another tatter in a few years!!
