Goodies in the mail!

Focusing on the gifts for Yvette's shower left me very little time for blogging. While I was busy crocheting and tatting, some wonderful items arrived in the mail!

I received these gorgeous acorn bobbins from Dave at Grizzly Mountain Arts... I can't wait to get back to my bobbin lace! Thank you so much, Dave! There's nothing like using beautiful tools!

Next I received my beautiful prize from Jon... her Magic Moment snowflake. Color me surprised! Jon also included a beautiful bookmark and cell phone fob! Jon, you're the best! Thank you very much! What more could a girl ask for?

How about a wonderful tatting book and a beautiful beaded flower? They're from Laura. How did she know that anything with beads fascinates me? As for the book... I think I've found the edging I want to use for daughter Joanne's wedding hanky in this little gem! Laura, you made my day with these wonderful, thoughtful gifts. Thank you!

No, I didn't receive this in the mail. Today I finished my second Magic Moment snowflake. I tatted this in Altin Basak #3003, size 50.

My next quest is to find the perfect 3" motif for some coasters. Anyone have a suggestion?


  1. So glad you enjoyed your bobbins, Diane! Your other treasures are lovely!

  2. Thos bobbins are gorgeous! I love acorns.
    Your lace from Jon and Laura are both so lovely as is the motif you did! :)


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
