New Book

I just got a new book of tatting patterns to try.  It's "Tatting Patterns" by Lyn Morton.  Part of what attracted me to this book was that the patterns looked like ones I could handle without getting too frustrated.  Quite a few of the patterns incorporate beads and I've been wanting to learn to work with beads in my tatting.  There are some cute jewelry pieces I want to try and tatted corsages that I definitely want to make.  She includes a pansy edging and I LOVE pansies!  What makes them look great in the book is they are done in a purple variegated thread.  I will be adding that to my shopping list!  I replaced my Aero shuttle last week.  I have all my bobbins, but couldn't find the shuttle anywhere (dang kids!).  I found a great Etsy shop called Creative Stitches that had the shuttle I needed.  She shipped it faster than anything I've received through Etsy yet!

It won't be long & you too will be mixing the things you make together...ending up with some really wonderful things. I can't wait to see what you come up with. I like the other stuff you & your husband make. Yes I do look at it all.
