Happy Birthday Seth and April!

Every year about this time, we take the kids out to dinner for their birthdays.  Seth is eight days older than April.  So somewhere between the two we celebrate.

I don't expect to get any minis done today.  Too busy getting things ready.

First of all, I tangled both of their card envelopes.  As you can see, I didn't get the other end of the flooring dipped.

Next I will show you the progress on the lucet...I think that I am getting better at it.  I went back and watched a few more videos on U tube.  The more I watched, the more I got the rhythm of it.

I do think that it would work better with a better lucet, but for learning purposes, this one works fine.  There is even one video that shows somebody working with a piece of plastic cut in a crude V shape and that even works!

Anyway, Tessie will have to wait until tomorrow to have hers made.
To fill in the gaps, I will show you my latest tangle.  I did this one especially to fit the frame that it is in.  this is a great way to fill frames that I have sitting around doing nothing. 

At least it keeps me awake whilst watching TV at the end of the day. 

I have to go get ready now.  Outback, here we come.

See you tomorrow.

My goodness, Casey, that tangle is magnificent! You have the magic touch, that's for sure.

Today, I'm following your stream of consciousness method of work. It's going very well. Yesterday,the heat was almost unbearable. Today, it's much better. Have a nice time with the kids and a Happy Birthday to April and Seth!

You can do it on a hairpin too, thats how I learned to do it. The kind that has a U shape .

Thanks Klara, I was wondering about that. I also have a very fine hairpin lace tool that would probably work.

Geeze, you are so darn talented. Energetic too. I get exhausted just watching you work, LOL.

Love the tangled names on the cards! Heck, everything's super-dooper!

I've never heard of how they work...and how clever you are to make one!
