Lockdown 2 - Hearts and Crosses

So tonight All Hallows Eve, we hear that in the UK we are, before the end of the week, going into another lockdown to try and reduce Covid-19 infections. 

So possibly more tatting time?

In the meantime I tatted this heart, pattern from Martha Ess’s book ‘button jar tatting’ which I attached to a top 

And to cheer myself up I made some 'death cakes'  or 'soul cakes' which used to be given out at this time of the year to commemorate the dead.  Which is pretty apt as I spent most of yesterday in the churchyard taking funeral services. 

May be I will also find more time to write on this blog.  


  1. Lovely heart! I've never heard of "death cakes" or "soul cakes" before. There'a always something interesting to learn!
