Save the date ~ Tollway Tatters

It's been a while since we've been able to get together, but we have set a meeting date of Saturday, July 9. If you're in the Chicago area and would like to join us, we meet at the Hinsdale Oasis on 294 at 10 a.m. We've been known to stay as late as 4 p.m., but anyone should feel free to join us for even a few minutes. You'll be able to tell us by our tie-dye t-shirts!

Today was blistering hot again. I do not like hot weather. Sophia spent a lot of time in her puddle pool today, and I sat inside and tatted while watching her. She sure had a lot of fun! So did I!

I finished test tatting Robin Perfetti's Victorian Doily from her soon-to-be-published book of coasters. I love the way it turned out! I used size 20 Lizbeth, Wedgewood Dk. It's 4 3/4" across, just the right size for a coaster.

The shuttles are two that I blinged last year. I'm feeling the urge to bling again, but it will have to wait until I get a little more reorganizing done, and I have a few things to finish up for The Little Mermaid.

I also worked a little more on my newest Spinning Wheel glass mat. I'm using size 20 hand-dyed thread from LadyShuttleMaker, Helm's Deep. The shuttles are from Shuttle by Design. I do enjoy collecting and using patterns, threads, and shuttles!
