Another shuttle giveaway, that is! The winner may choose one of these three shuttles. Denise and I will each keep one of the other two. I meant to post this on International Tatting Day, but somehow the day got away from me, and yesterday I was off to the Sewing and Quilting Expo... what fun!
I'll draw the winner's name sometime during the week. Just leave a comment on this post, and your name will be entered into the drawing!
I may have to re-think my packaging of giveaways. Look what happened to Marie's package...
My friend Chris at the post office and I think that someone tried to run it through a machine. Obviously, the thickness of the package was not a concern! Luckily, I had an envelope with Marie's name inside the package. Otherwise, I'd never have remembered who I was mailing it to. Marie's package is safely on its way again... in a box!
Friday morning I finished this lovely lace bookmark:
The pattern is from Emsyjane, simple and easy to follow. My tassel is about half the thickness that the pattern calls for. I have a terrible time with tassels, and I just couldn't make it look as pretty as the pattern picture. Of course I used one of my new Emsyjane shuttles! Oops... I forgot to take a picture of it. I guess you'll just have to go to the shop to see the little beauties that Emma has to offer! The thread is Hakelgarn Nr. 20. I love this thread!
I now have three hanky edgings in progress. I love having multiple projects. That way I can flit from one pretty pattern and thread to another! It does make it difficult to finish anything in a timely manner, though.
Next week... Lafayette Lace Days! I can hardly wait!
