First the good news.. I have 4 new shuttles! Yay!! *jumps around, dances, comes back and sits*
Yeap, four new shuttles. The day before my sister Joey came back from her holiday. We had talked quite a few times over the past month and I had mentioned to her how badly I needed another shuttle. She got me four and after she gave them to me last night she said, “Just incase you want more… let me know. I have more.” I didn’t understand what she meant. She explained thqt she had actually bought TEN shuttles. She had six more in India! She was afraid that they might break with all the jam-packed packing that she had done and so had left six behind.
Ten Shuttles. What was she thinking?! I wonder what she thought I’d do with so many shuttles. Stick some in my hair? 🙂 That’s an idea! …:D
Anyway, there you go the shuttles.
Next … this is what I have been tatting for the past three days. Well actually, I finished that on Friday but was too busy to post it and yesterday, I came online to post it but completely forgot about it. The pattern is Heart’s Desire. I had done the smae thing 1/4th of the way sometimes when I started tatting but as I had literally no practice I had left it after I ran in to trouble. After TattingChic posted hers, I decided to do it again. I have done it in the Viscose thread again and I now Know that the thread is size 20. (I just love that thread!) Although I had so much fun making it, I don’t think I am pleased with the results. Somehow it looks too big and too loose. The pattern was like working a puzzle. I really didn’t know what was joining where and why until I had joined it. I followed the pattern blindly and decided not to think or use my head at all. I enjoyed but I don’t think I want to do it again. I’ll just leave it as it is. May be someday I can sew it on to something. This will be the next motif for the 25motifChallenge bt the way.
