Tatting Episodes 14 and 15 in the can!!



I have just posted a podcast..and have another actually recorded and ready for uploading next week ! Can you actually believe it! It is so shocking!! I lost some of my pictures of works in progress and my new grandbaby girl...attack of the DD killed it! I re-took some pics I will put up of what I am up to! I was asked to remember to put in links to mentioned sources so I am trying to update these. The pic to right are the Japanese texts I use most; the pic to left are Iris' books from which the third pic is taken. That was the reference to the doily I am working. What do you think of the thread? I am not likin' it. Maybe just a bit too off the path? Below are the sources I used for the current works in progress.

Thank you again and again to Trayna for the thank you call from Scotland!! I am still using your accent...badly! I so love that sound! A true friend was just found! Darlene almost wrecked her car getting through the tape on her package! Look for a new contest in upcoming months.

Congrats to http://www.tattingchic.blogspot.com/ for her 100th posting crikers gal! When do you find the time!!

Hi Arlene! So nice to see a post from you again! Oh, I have several of those Japanese tatting books and I love each one of them! I just had another one arrive in the mail today from Lacis and I'm expecting some new thread from Handy Hands any day now! Woo Hoo! Let's hear it for our fabulous tatting suppliers!
I've also purchased from snowgoose before, too. I've seen the lacmakerusa site before, but haven't ordered, yet. I'll have to go check it out. Oh, I just noticed that you mentioned my giveaway! Thanks for the shoutout!

I actually just came by to say thank you for entering my giveaway today! LOL! Now my comment is almost longer than your entire blog post so it is time to say good bye

Cheerio! :)

The Japanese books are gorgeous. I've got one and it's a treasure.

I like the grey thread you are using for the doily pattern, Arlene. Rather unique. It should tat up nicely.

I think the grey/black thread looks great, very unusual. When you have finished it will be fab. It's one of my favorite doileys..the only one of iris's books that I have, maybe I should get the others.

This is like a nice gift for my tatting day, thank you,
Iris

Arlene said...
