Here's what I came home with:
All the stuff in the top right corner plus the red Tat Days patch came in my goodie bag, a large reusable grocery bag which contained:
- Finca thread
- a magnifying glass
- a cute bag with circles on it to carry a current project in
- 2 great thread samples of Lizbeth thread
- a luggage tag with bug buttons
- a ladybug refrigerator note pad
- a metal box with magnets and small goodies, and a blue origami paper box
If you didn't know, the theme of this year's Tat Days was "I've been bitten by the Tatting Bug!" The bookmark was a freebie too.
On to my purchases. It's a good thing DH doesn't see my check book or my credit card statements.
- 2 balls of variegated Lizbeth thread, size 20. (Size 40 was there too.)
- 1 ball of Altin Basak variegated thread
- 4 plastic knitting bobbins, which I need to keep away from that bad cat Sylvia. She has ruined several of these. (They are the bomb for putting ball thread on.)
- 1 Skein of Yarnplayer's Vibrato HDT, size 20
- A darling decorated green Clover shuttle
- A CD of all the patterns at this Tat Days (not shown)
- Tatting Theory and Patterns by Jan Stawasz - this goes with my lovely gold shuttle he made!
- Tatted Fashion by Tieko Fujita
- Tatting by Pam Palmer
- DMC's color Tatting pamphlet
- An Italian Frivolite pamphlet
- And 2 books by Martha Ess - Tat's Amore and Tea is for Tatting. And I got Martha to sign each one!
Whew. Now I have to work to pay for my sins.
