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!
