Isn't This Purty!
He is a nice man, my dentist, and it was his birthday. He got tatting and appreciated it! Love it.
That almost made up for the BIG needle that went into my palate. . Almost! Just a new filling. Phew. The procedure was relatively short and not too expensive. Could have been a crown, so I am looking at the bright side!
For this lovely bit of professionalism AND because it was his birthday, he got Miranda's Angels! I didn't get to keep it for too long. Guess I will just have to tat another!
Then, my mom tells me there are some shuttles at her place for me from a friend of the family who has been very kind to my mother. She knew I was learning to tat and said she would send me some old shuttles that had belonged to her aunt or her mother - I forget whose they were.
This was a year ago, but she has remembered and I shall see them this weekend! I made this for her for a bunch of reasons. It goes in the mail today.

In response to my email asking for her address in order to send tatting as a thank you for her lovely gesture, she sent me this:
I just cannot get over your talent. Imagine mastering the most difficult of all "needle" crafts starting with instructions on the internet. Both of our Mothers were creative and did beautiful hand work. I appreciate the work that goes into a piece. I have always felt the person so creative shares so much of themselves. It is like reaching out to others! I will always prize such a piece especially from you.
I am blushing. And pleased. You see, she is a very special lady.
