The Return Of:
Looks like the book will be wending its merry way
to sewmuchfun today!
Seems that Dale Marie has had a bad time of it lately; she has sent mega-apologies to us, feeling terrible that we were waiting for her to send the book on. I have sent her warm wishes. I do hope things improve for her in the New Year.
Today she will post the book. Let us know, sewmuchfun, when it arrives.
Heather...Heather... Heather... All because of you, has this happy event occurred! You were the one that cracked the case of the missing book recipient; receiving DM's facebook address was what did the trick. I did not know who to look for on-line. That pivotal clue came originally from Isdihara, via Tatskool, by way of the sleuthing Sherlock, Suneeti. Jane provided the name that matched the other clue.
This problem-solving was definitely a great example of the whole being greater than its parts. Tatting teaches much more than stitches.
So, the tatting world is large and powerful, my friends, as these tatter detectives hail from all over the globe. We are talking about Canada, England, Ireland, Singapore and the United States. All just trying to track down one errant piece of tatting literature! Thanks, Everyone!
#24 Motif Challenge
Tatted this up yesterday, as Suneeti sent me the pattern (hers, I believe) and said that it would be a good one for teaching. I love the snowflake ( Note, Miranda: SIX points!) and it indeed looks simple, but as I started tatting it...hmmm: non-twist join at the end, SLTs, longish chains, double picots in the centre little rings, all that joining. Would have done me in as a newbie!
Good for a beginner, but as a teaching device, I think it would gobble my hour right up! Thanks, Suneeti, for the lovely motif. I will give the student a copy of this and the motif. It is tatted in the Altin Başak you sent me!
My design update: still limping along:
