Shuttle by Design:
This sweatshirt was from my hubby.
2nd Front (this one from our daughter)
2nd Back. 
 Tatting supplies!!!!!
 A collection of new t-shirts designed by our daughter.
 And sweatshirts(including the 2 above).
 Movies and Christmas Harp music.
 2 Christmas towels(needing tatting!), and candy!!!

(which I won't really use due to the engraving),

The only bad part is we don't have our snow!!!

Tablecloth update

January 2011 until now.
 Progress(slow progress) is being made.  I have all 
the ends finally sewn in and most of the sides are 
even.  I like the design that is emerging.

Today's agenda

Pumpkin Pies and Tatting
I need to have 8 pumpkin pies for tomorrow night 
so....I will be busy today, and since cooking time 
is 40-50 minutes....
 I figure there will be tatting in between, and I 
still have 2 test tattings to do.
Have a wonderful day and hopefully lots of tatting 
too!!! :)

Test tatting & Restocking

I have been able to test tat more for Elaine P. Gan.
I have realized that she must use larger thread 
than I do.  I prefer and have mostly size 40 so..
When I finished the 2 crosses I realized they are 
almost the same size as the photos on the patterns.
Love the designs!

Next, I needed to restock and be prepared to tat for 
next year's Craft Shows, so...he is what I have gotten 
so far.  I do have other items needed, and some were 
on back order so I have to reorder them later.
Lots of thread and beads for all different projects. 
Have a wonderful day!!! :)

Tatted bookmark? And Angel ring

I was able to test tat a bookmark for Elaine P. Gan, 
but...I used size 40 thread and clearly she must use 
a larger size because you can see it isn't bookmark size.
I tatted it with my Snowflake Shuttle, and used 
Yarnplayer's Snowflake HDT-so beautiful!!!
I might tat 2 more of these joining to the end to 
make a better sized bookmark.
 I have the most awesome shuttles ever!!!!
I special ordered them from Rita at Shuttle by Design:
I love them, and there may be more on the way!
 I also tatted West Pine Creations Angel Ring,
 link here:
I used size 40 Lizbeth Christmas Red and Snow White, 
and adjusted the stitch count which made it look 
different than hers, but our daughter loves it!!
Have a wonderful Saturday!!! :)

I have plenty of tatting supplies I want or need, or just 
need to replenish.
But....while searching for all the things I want or need 
I found beads that remind me of 2 Lizbeth thread colors.
Seed Beads Czech Beads Glass
Looks like Lizbeth Caribbean.
Seed Beads Czech Beads Glass
Looks like Lizbeth Coral Splash.

Well....back to deciding to actually push the 
proceed to check out buttons on all 6 carts.
Have a wonderful day!!! :)

Saturday I was able to participate in another 
Craft Show.  My husband, daughter and friend 
were all there to help(so thankful for that!!).
The tables were fully loaded with things.
Pictured below is the "front" table with mostly
tatted items.
 Next is the side table with items made by our 
 A close-up view of our Christmas tree 
displaying tatted angels, Ice Drops, 
and a few snowflakes.
 Next, is mostly tatted jewelry, and a 
few bookmarks.
 A better view of the center of the table.
 Our daughter convinced me to sell some of my 
ornaments with tatting on them(so hard to part 
We had a great day!!  I already have the information 
for 2 of the Craft Shows to join in next year, and am
working on getting information for at least 4 more.
