I know it has been awhile since I have posted...but....now I have a few things to share with you all. First of all on etatters list there has been some discussion with Peter Cua of Philippines. He has been experimenting making shuttles out of horn. He also experimented doing some etching on the horn shuttles. Today FedEx stopped and delivered a package from Peter to me. These are the dragon and Phoenixes etched shuttles that he sent to me.

Aren't these shuttle beautiful. They are all hand etched. If you click on the picture you will see a closer picture to see the detail of the artwork. I have had a busy day so I haven't had a chance to try them out yet...but I will believe me. The etching looks like silver on the black. In places you can see where the etching is brown...that is the horn I believe. When you hold these up to the list you can see through the horn. They are really beautiful. And the etching is on both sides of the shuttles.

I will be taking these shuttles with me to Hector this coming weekend, so people can see how beautiful they are with their own eyes....They are so pretty....and I just happen to love dragons as you all know....which leads me to....

What will I be teaching in Hector this coming weekend. I will be teaching a 3D dragon that I have designed. Here is a couple pictures of him.

His name is "My Little Pony Dragon. I also made him in purple and green...that was my first experiment with designing him. I believe there is a picture of him already on my blog somewhere.

This coming weekend is not only the Hector event but I will be having house guest too. How exciting huh???!!! Mark Myers and Erin Halloway will be staying with me. We plan to tat during the day and burn the midnight oil doing bobbinlace in the evening. They will both be flying in on Friday...so I have been busy getting things ready for my guest. I am so excited....Alot to be thankful isn't it.....

While I was waiting for FedEx to arrive this morning ( for I had been tracking the package) I was painting a lace bobbin...enjoying quiet time...no Peyton today. And I really missed his smiles today....he is so cute...anyhow...the bobbin....I painted a Flower Fairy on my bobbin. Here are the pictures of the bobbin....

Again if you click on the pictures you will see a larger picture of the bobbin.

And one more picture before I sign off again for awhile...probably be back after the Hector event this coming weekend.....My grandson Timmy Guy who just turned nine and Peyton Lee my other grandson. Chrystal had a professional photographer take pictures of the boys. I have seen the pictures which were just beautiful....so now I am thinking...how come I don't have my pictures from her yet....

Anyhow...I hope you all enjoy your week...and tat yourselves silly...me.....I will be tatting with my new exquiste shuttles and enjoying my guests muchly...and having a blast at Hector.....sigh....it doesn't get any better than this folks...it truly doesn't......
