What Happens When a Tatter Loses Their Mind... motif#8

This is what happens when a tatters starts to crack. My wife and I unfortunately have no children (not from lack of wanting), we have no pets because our apartment complex charges a fortune for them, but we do have Serta Counting Sheep. They may not be as good as kids or pets, but they don't have to be taken for a walk and never want to borrow the car. Believe it or not , the sheep are not the crazy part!!! The crazy part started a while ago while I was crocheting some baby booties and bonnets for a ministry called "Threads of Love", they take them to the local hospitals for the preemies, I decided to make a set for "Trinity" (she's a #3 Serta Counting Sheep). That was strange, but cute, but strange... the losing my mind part came when I decided she needed a little BLING, so I tatted her a tiny pink tiara with a swarovski crystal on top. My wife laughed (it is her sheep, after all) and I'm starting to think about starting a Tatters Anonymous group. Well here's Trinity.......

Can You Name This Doily? Motif #7a,b,c,d

April Snowflakes did bring May doilies, unfortunately it also brought a lack of organization and a SENIOR MOMENT.
I'm not sure I qualify for a senior moment in my forties, of course 20 years ago I would have said of course. Somehow the older I get the younger everyone else seems.
The senior moment has to do with remembering what the name is of each of these doilies are and where I put the patterns so I can give each designer the well earned credit they are due. So please forgive my memory lapse. I do know that one of them is the Arches doily, and another are the windmill doilies, one was done according to the pattern, the second one was made larger by increases the repeats in the pattern. All were done in Flora #20. By the way, April Snowflakes brought May Doilies, and May Doilies have brought June Earrings, so check back soon.

April Snowflakes Bring May Doilies - Motif # 6

We didn't have much in the way of April showers here in Mississippi but I had a blizzard of snowflakes appear. They include ones by Jon (by the way her snowflake book is great), Tatbit, Ruth (Celtic patterns), and several others. They also include my only non-white snowflake. I think May was a doily month, stay tuned for my next catch-up post.
