Busy Hands

Pretty much everyone knows the saying about idle hands.  Well, I've been doing a good job at keeping out of trouble.  


I've crocheted and lightly starched a Victorian Fans Collar.  
I have my pearl buttons ready, but my eyes are tired so I am going to sew one on tomorrow.


When I finished crocheting the first collar, I hopped right onto a second one.
This is a "Daisy" patterned collar.
It has been starched and only needs a button as well.
This collar is going to my pen pal, who lives in Rhode Island.
This beautiful lady and I both share a love of Victorian things.


Since I was up extremely early today (Monday), I had finished all my chores today by 9:00 AM.
Needless to say after I finished starching and shaping my collars, I still had some time on my hands.

Another darling lady (and pen pal), who lives in Pennsylvania, has been on my mind.
I wanted to send her something, but I was kind of tired of crocheting.
I pulled out this beautiful shaded pink thread and tatted her a cross bookmark.
It is starched and ready to go.

I have one more thread project going -- a bookmark for my penpal, who lives in Texas.  
We all met via a group for ladies who love Victorian history.
