Thank you, dear lace-lovin' friends, for all your kind words and well wishes!
TATBiT, thanks for the link! Dave said order them now! As soon as Alison gets here today...
Laura, I asked Dave if he would be my tatting partner... I wish you could have seen the look on his face!
Iris, I broke my left arm... so my husband would be the perfect tatting partner. I could still manipulate the shuttle! I think I'll take your advice and try some design ideas. I'm sure that will give me a real mental workout!
Speaking of design... Sherry, your new purple thread made my mouth water and sent my mental gears spinning! Pay day is next week!
I don't want to slight anyone... I consider all of you my tatting friends, and I love reading your blogs!
I'm going to do my best to immerse myself in tatting through reading and drawing... if I can! I'm a little drawing challenged. I guess I didn't pay enough attention in art or math class!
