It was a lovely prize from Tatting Chic!
contest recently - and her's what I won. A great book to help teach tatting, Learn To Tat, complete with DVD. An EZ-Bob, loaded with green size 10 Manuela thread. And an Aero type shuttle with an extra bobbin. Isn't Tatting Chic generous? I love this!
Now comes the confession. I have never owned an Aero shuttle - so this will be a nifty thing for me to try! And the same is true for the Manuela thread - never tried it! I guess I'll have to wind up one of those bobbins with that pretty green thread, won't I? I saw a heart pattern in the Learn To Tat book that would be just the thing to make. And I have several friends to loan this book and DVD to - so this is so great!
Thank you, Tatting Chic! You are such a sweetheart! Here are some flowers for you - azaleas near my house.
And I was happy. I went to bed happy, and trudged off again to work today. Another long day.
And I got home to find ANOTHER package waiting for me. I hadn't won any more contests, so I was clueless. I was expecting nothing.
And I opened the package.
The Tarnished Tatter. Look at all this!!!! Click on the picture and see it all!
Here's what she sent me: Three skeins of lovely pastel HDT, her own. A spool of white silk thread. A large spool of gold thread. Heather's own picot gauges, made for every size. A pretty golden filagree shuttle. Her great book - Afternoon Tatting. Two lovely tatted birds - a hummingbird and a swan - to be worn as pendants, with the ribbon and silver ring to hold it. And, from Miss Tatting Tea Tuesday, tea and hot chocolate, and lots of it!
Plus a lovely letter. Isn't Heather the best? I was stunned, blown away. Here are flowers for Heather! Thank you so much, Heather!
