I could think of no better way to commemorate the year mark of the beginning of the wonderful new aspect of my life, than to celebrate it with the addition of this hand crafted shuttle. It is not only lovely to look at and to hold; but it is also a grand shuttle to tat with.
To the wonderful woman- whoever and wherever you are - who gave a total stranger a peach-coloured, Clover shuttle, and told her to go and learn how to tat, I say a big thank you.
It has been a great year for tatting, for making new on-line friends, for sharing information, reading books and patterns, learning many new skills, and, of course, reveling in the fabulous HDT from Ladyshuttlemaker, Tatskool and Yarnplayer. You are THE BEST!
I am sending this to all of you who helped me so much; I can say it best this way:
The pattern is from Tatting Adventures with beads, shuttle & needle by Judith Connors. The yarn is Yarnplayer's Scarlet, #40.
