Sun, no sun

Yesterday was sunny, bright, warm, and cheerful! Today is rainy, dull, and chilly. What a difference a day makes!


I think I placed the charm in a funny way on this Ice Drop, or maybe it's because the ribbon is so stiff. I now have another St. Patrick's Day Ice Drop, but this one is not my favorite.


I had a wonderful surprise in the mail yesterday. The cat shuttle is a present from my cousin Trish, and the heart shuttle is a present from my friend Rita. Thank you, Trish and Rita! These little beauties are from Shuttle By Design.


My newest shuttles from Russia arrived. Doesn't Veronica do beautiful work?


I managed to tat another motif for my sister-in-law's runner. I'm almost to the point of having the pattern memorized!

  1. No it's not your best ice drop, (am I allowed to say that) I think your ribbon is too stiff,
    I like the gold thread for the runner, I think it looks lovely in gold perhaps better than the green.
    we have rain too here, the morning was lovely and Vernon and I managed a short walk, now it's chucking it down. Hope you have a good day

    1. Yes, Margaret, you are allowed to say that! I also think the ribbon is too stiff. I think I'll take the charm off and just use the ribbon. The charm can be used for another Ice Drop.

  3. They are beautiful shuttles! How many motifs will there be in the runner? Good that your test run has helped you memorise the pattern.

    1. I haven't figured that out yet, Jane. I do know it needs to be 3 motifs wide, and probably 21 motifs long... just a guesstimate!

  4. Great tatting and shuttles!!! :)
    I don't know about your forecast for tomorrow, but we are going through the same 2 days as you and then tomorrow is snow. That's Michigan for you!

    1. I really have no complaints. The weather has been incredibly mild. I would like a little more snow, though!

    1. The charm has found a new home. It just didn't work with this Ice Drop. You never know you don't try!

  6. Love your shuttles - and the ones from Russia are especially pretty. I love the charms on the ice drops, but I seem to have to find just the perfect one or they just don't look right.
