Taping tomorrow...BUT....A winner has been drawn....drum rolls!! To be announced with the podcast going up this weekend!
I had my DD draw a name tonight and the winners are......not so fast!!! You will have to wait until the podcast goes up!! It looks like they might both be tatters but if not the deal is the same...I will post the winner's here and in the podcast...drop me an email at email@example.com and I will ship your package. You may choose either a tatting prize or a knitting one...your choice so if you do both you'll have to ponder!
Bagsmith.com..I bought for my birthday...Ok, so I love scissors!! Note the paw paw trying to get them while Lucky sits on the ironing board. A second later they you would have seen them on the floor!
On the needles: Christmas presents I can't talk about but might podcast...Don't listen girls. I gave a vanilla pair I am going to start tomorrow for grandson..his request was white with one blue stripe and one orange one. Huh?
Spinning: This is finally that darned Lady doing somethin or another with the damned stone...also known as
The Woman and the Stone from Crown Mountain Farms. It is not as I thought it would be but I do like it. I am doing a scarf...not sure I will continue with this pattern but I might. Until later....Arlene!!

First off, Iris Niebach's newest book, Fantasia 3, is one of my favorites!!! To the left is Rose worked with David Reed-Smith shuttles using Lizbeth 40g in the same colorway as the previous doily. It is a pink varigated.
The one to the left is Clara worked in the NEW Lizbeth 80g Light Lemon (614). I LOVE this 80 gauge so far. It is crisp and holds its shape, no fray. The shuttles are both from the Shuttle Shop The one is Palmetto 2007 Flower garden and the newest is Fall into Tatting 2010 Palmetto shuttle. Sadly, I have never been able to go but I swear I will someday!!
This shuttle is very unique as you can see the cutwork is completely different and the laser engraving very intricate. Great job for them!

SEEEE! I won't be bad. Seriously, it's ok if you remove me for low activity but funny thing is I have now got my tatting mojo back!! I have been focusing on knitting mostly socks and had had a bit of tatting wrist going on.
These are my first projects out of my gate again...Of course I always go to Iris for inspiration. This is another rendition of Iri's Lorella in pink varigated Lizbeth. The multi Spinwheel from Mary Konior is also in Lizbeth. I really do like this thread though I am anxious to try the 80g.
I have also been trying to needle tat. I refuse to give up though I don't really like it as much. I think it is a break for my hands though so worth the continued effort. I always laugh when people don't like shuttle tatting because to me, it is second nature. I am humbled totally but my lack of needle finesse! So, I get it. Bookmmarks will be my challenge next maybe another twenty-five??
keep you posted!!
