I have one "corner" completed. I'm sure once it's sewed down it will look much better. My issue is my sewing skills are not so great. I tried laying it out to see if there was a way to join the separate elements into one. There are potentials but depending on your tension, it may not work out.
I'm beginning a second corner point testing the joining to see how they play out. It's being worked in size 50 thread since I have such a large abundance of it. I do need to begin making this year's snowflakes for my giftees. Today will be the doily, tomorrow the snowflakes.

Diane's Ice drop pendant tutorial a while ago. Using her instructions I worked up a different backing for it. I wanted something that would blend in or match the design on the front so I went with clovers.

I received some heart breaking news this morning. My mother was diagnosed with cancer. It is in her bones,lungs,and kidneys. I have an appointment with a hospices worker in the morning. Of the five of us I have been charged with sorting everything out. It's going to be an extremely exhausting next few weeks that I hope turn into months or even years. The most difficult part of all of this, is trying to explain to my kids what's happening to Grandma.
I'll lose my tears in my tatting for now.
