Tat, dig, weave and eat

 August Be-Stitched pattern.  I suggested a 2 round square pattern that can be tatted into a tablecloth and this is what Nancy Tracy came up with.  
I used Baroque Thread.
 Not a good year for the garden....only a little over 2 1/2 pounds from 6 seed potatoes.
 This is a cotton blanket I wove for my son and sewed a blanket binding on.  Just look at those mitered corners!
Breakfast.  Two poached eggs from the chickens on my homemade sourdough bread lightly toasted.  Yes......I like pepper.  :)

Knitting......and Tatting, too

 Round and round I went with this tatted "Occasional Doily" with Ecru sz 10 thread.  The blocking was a challenge (ALL those picots!!) and dried at 9 1/2" x 15".
Can you tell I like to take pictures?  ;)
