Postie brings another give-away win!

Remember way back in October when Ambitatterous's had a Give-away  called Fractured Quotes "Knot-Tea Fun".
Wanda won the prize....and
I won an extra prize!
Just look at the beautiful ornament that she made for Wanda.

Ever since then IsDihara has been working day and night to make my gonna be wonderful ornament.
I did keep telling her that there was no hurry and she did keep sending me tantalizing previews.
I loved the anticipation.

And THEN the almost finished ornament was hit by catastrophe, a veritable tatting sunami........when it became part of an experiment by 'The Sprout' to see if it would float in tea......and it did!
I can only imagine her reaction!

So she had to start all over again.
that it was worth the wait. After all we all know that perfection takes a little longer!
It's absolutely stunning.
Here it is peeping enticingly from it's bubble wrap.

The first thing that I saw was THE TATTING in MY Bracken Crunch....she really likes that!
She even sent some' bling' in case I thought it needed it! As if!
Fergeal and Tadgh rushed over and helped to lift it out....boy they thought that it was really heavy.
They tried to hold it up high, but they just couldn't hack it!
But it isn't heavy at all, it's a fabric covered polystyrene ball. They are just weaklings!
Let's take a closer look.
The finish is stunning with that lovely bow and hanger.
All round the edge is a blue trim with more tatting.




  1. That ornament is absolutely gorgeous and yes, well worth the waiting! Wow!

  2. That is one fabulous ornament! ...and it isn't even tea-stained! ; )

  3. Tea stained!! that would prove that she really does tat on Tuesday!

  4. Tatskool, you have been so patient, waiting for slow-as-molasses me to get it finished. Thank you for your lovely post.

    FYI--I will happily make these ornaments again, but have learned my lessons -- 1. make sure the tatting is done first and 2. keep the Sprout's temptation factor LOW using all means possible. LOL!

    SO glad you are happy with your prize!

  5. That is one stunningly beautiful ornament!!!!! You are such a lucky girl!!!!!

  6. That is lovely! What a beautiful prize! Isdihara is a woman of many talents!

  7. It's such a pretty blue! - perfect with the tatting.

  8. Woweee .. is right. It is absolutely beautiful. Although Wanda's has a Haloween theme and is lovely, I love what IsDihara has made for you. The ribbon bow and hanger is such a delighful addition too.

  9. Simply stunning! What a treasure!

  10. Gorgeous quilting and tatting on the fabric ornament!! You are a lucky lady and why shouldn't you be. You have 2 lucky leprechauns on your side. :)

  11. You are a very lucky lady. Its beautiful. F and T need to join a gym! What do leprechauns wear as work out clothes?

  12. I have been trying to read the letters on the little stand upon which the quilted ball ornament sits. Does it says something about Leprechauns? Is it a Leprechaun treat jar?

    Ciarán says, "Leprechauns don't need to work out."

  13. Thank you all so much for your comments, I am indeed lucky.

    IsDihara that's Fergeal's favorite tin...especially for standing on to reach things! See it here are too funny. Fergeal and Tadgh wouldn't be seen dead in gym gear...their idea of a workout is lifting their tea cups up and down!
    Well said Cairán.
