I see there is a new list forming for "Tatting Designers". I don't think I fit that catagory. I have only published one tatting pattern in IOLI magazine. I know I have graced a couple covers with my designs of same said magazine and I think I did a write up that was also published. But I do not have a book of tatting patterns. So I do not think I fit the catagory of designer. There is so much talent out there. IT is MIND BOGGLING!!

But I had a good time...on Saturday My brother and my sister inlaw took me to see "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skulls" which I enjoyed and then afterwards we went to one of my favorite resteraunts. MacRoni And Grill. Yum ...yum...I didn't eat all my food so I had it boxed and it became lunch for me the next day. The time flew so fast...and before you know it I was back on the plane for Rochester, New York.
The one doily I showed on an earlier blog I gave to Jill because I wanted to give her something nice. It was the one in purple, varigated purple and blues and pastel purple, yellow and blue...all the threads were Manuela size 20. She liked the doily.
Oh and one more thing....I actually saw the Space Shuttle go up from the parking lot in Orlando. That was pretty exciting ...I was just think then, how much more the excitement to be right near the launch pad.
Another reason for this post is drum rolllllling please......
has two new books out. I know because my copies came in the mail today. Kinda funny I almost forgot about them with everything that went on this year. But......One of the books is by Christel Weidmann. It has all kinds of farm animals in the book. I proof tatted some of the critters that are in the book...but I didn't see all the he hawers so now I want to do the rooster, hen and the calf and so on...But here is a picture of the ones I did do...I thought I did the bull too...but I can't seem to find him right now. The patterns for the goose and gosling...I did a bit differently. I shoe laced and encapsulated my threads when I had to so I could get the orange where I wanted it to be...that is just me playing around....
Handy Hands also has another new book entitled..."Tatting ABC's & 123's"
Here is a picture of the cover (front and back) so you can get an idea what is in this book.
You can order either one of these books from Handy Hands....
