tatting & " Darned cute bag"

I found a site on Tatting .I can do this craft, but not very well. I have not practiced for some time. I saw a lady doing a a demo of needle tatting at the Goshen fair a few weeks ago   I think I will try to do this a new way seems easy enough.  Here is a blog that is a tatting blog . check it out if you are interested in this sort of thing.
I have been working on a piecing project. It's called "Darn Cute Bag".  It is a Bunny Hill Design .It is made with charm squares. I had started it a few yrs ago. I had  it all ready to go , but had several projects and baby things to do before I felt I could start this. I liked it so much I even got the same charm squares to make it with. I have the back and front all pieced. It  is looking good to me.  It was time consuming . I needed to add a few more fabrics than it called for . Hmm not quite enough fabric but had a lot to match this color pattern. I plan on entering it in the fair next year so I am not going to use it till after the fair  ,since it is all pastels. Im sure I would have it messed up somehow.UGH!!! Here is how much I have gotten done so far
