I just finished the second round of Hostess Set Centerpiece from Tatting Patterns by Mary Konior. I love the pattern. I love the thread (Parlak Oren Bayan Dantel Ipligi, sizd 50, color #066). Most of all, I LOVE my new silver shuttle from LadyShuttleMaker! The shuttle arrived in yesterday's mail... just in time for round 2!
I love the size and weight of this little shuttle. It's about the size of a Clover. I'm not sure how much thread it holds... I was counting, but I lost count! As I was tatting today, I thought about the pretty tatting pattern molded into the shuttle. Then it dawned on me... it's Mary Konior's Leaf Braid, my favorite shuttle-only pattern!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
