Thinking about it. . .

Well, I seem to have exhausted my supply of tatting gift recipients, so I'm trying to come up with another focus. Two ideas seem to be surfacing:

1. donations of hankies and ornaments to a nursing home or assisted living facility where a vintage/nostalgic gift could bring some happiness

2. making a collection of ornaments, bonnets, tea towels, hankies, and pillow cases for next fall's local craft fair (I did sell a handful of tatted ornaments at a yard sale a couple months ago, so there may be a small market there.)

Thoughts? Ideas? Warnings?

I know! I know! A blog giveaway! A giveaway for Christmas! Hee hee! I'll bet you'll find a recipient or two or three or four...with that! :)

I think both of your ideas are great.

Ornaments for a nursing home or hospital (children's ward, perhaps).

If you can stand it, make things like lace edged baby bonnet, etc for parents of babies who died; for them to be buried.
