Catching up on some CQ RR's & more Dyed Pretties

For the last couple of weeks I've been playing roulette with my  CQ needles,  my dyes and lots of tiles/grout for my new walk-in shower.  Yea!  The shower is finally done and I'm happy to say that I actually enjoyed my first loooong hot shower in my own home in over a week! I'll post pictures of the before and after once the walls are painted.  I'm thinking maybe I'll give myself a break from this type of hard labor until next week.  Already have my paint picked out (warm coco) and have plans on making a one-of-a-kind shower curtain - wait until you see what I've dreamed up - I can't wait to get that project started!

After my days of tiling & grouting I relaxed by catching up on some of my RR's.  3 of them are already in the mail leaving me with about 4 more to do.  Once I've completed these RR's, I need to get caught up with the TAST and CQJP projects.   I've decided to combine both and actually have January's done.. but here it is March so I guess I need to get my mojo working overtime!  After that I think I am going to give my hands some much needed rest as they have seriously been hurting over the past week.  I know I should have elected to have the surgery in January but I just didn't have the time to have my hands tied up for weeks at a time.  Tough getting old.

A weeks worth of CQ -
SRE Spider & Cabbage Roses for Kathy S

Framed Hat Lady for Kathy S

6" Vintage Valentine for Connie

Roses for Rita

Butterfly & Roses for Ely
Cabbage Rose Frame for Ely
6" Under the Sea for Ruby
Not sure where I got the energy but I also dyed up about 200+ pieces of new lace.  Pictures have been taken, items packaged so all I need to do now is upload them into my shop..... when I catch my breath.  Please peek into my Etsy shop during the next week for lots of new Spring Time pretties!

Pretty Spring Time Trio

Gorgeous new Rose

Is this not the most beautiful heart you've ever seen!

Can you just picture the center cut out
so this could be used as a beautiful frame!


  1. Dear Nicki ~ You have been one busy lady. I can't wait to see what you've done and are creating for your bathroom.

    Your laces are lovely as always.

    I am so far behind with TAST that now it feels like a burden to get caught up.

    I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about a calling card case from an antique pattern and trying to figure out how it's going to work. Then I got up this morning and cut out felt for lining my needle cases crocheted with the new colors. I have seven of them to complete, then photograph and get them uploaded to my Etsy shop too.

    There just doesn't seem to be enough time to do everything, so I just do what I can.

    Do give your hands a break so as not to hurt them further.

    Hope your day is a lovely one ~ FlowerLady

  2. Beautiful stitching Nicki Lee! Do take good care of your hands.
    I shall be drooling over your new laces, I know.....

  3. You put me to shame with all you get done Nicki! Love the lace pieces! Beautiful stitching - lucky girls in these round robins with you! Can't wait to see the shower curtain either!!

  4. Nicki, I am drooling over these photos and all the things you've been creating. I especially love that first image of the SRE roses...mmmm! All of it is gorgeous, gorgeous, georgeaous. I will be checking your shop. I need to get a handle on what I need for my current projects.

  5. These pieces are just stunning. Love all the detail. Really love the Cabbage rose frame for Ely.

  6. Thank you, Nicki, for checking out my blog, too! I have never tatted a seahorse, but I will sure try! I will let you know how I do, okay?

  7. Oh my....everything is simply beautiful! I love the framed lady ~ I have a special piece of lace I have been saving to do that and the clusters of flowers....now I am off to your etsy shop.....can't resist after seeing the new pieces!!!!

    1. Hi Terri & Ladies!

      SO sorry that I haven't had a chance to upload all my new pretties - trying to get caught up on a million things - hopefully I'll be able to upload a bunch this weekend. Please let me know if there's something you need (want LOL!)

  8. Your laces are beautiful. I particularly like the blue heart.

    1. Thank you! I have 2 more of these hearts dyed up in similar colors - if you are interested I can list them in my Etsy shop.
