Where does the time go? It seems that I've had very little time to do what I want to do, yet as a family we have accomplished a lot this week. I get to have a little time to myself this afternoon. Carol is working on sets for the high school play, and Dave is at her new house painting. The grocery shopping is done, and everything is put away. I do have two loads of laundry to finish up, but I can spend some me time while the machines are running.
Still, I have spent some time in tatting related activities...
First, despite my resolution to use what I have, I just had to purchase one of LadyShuttleMaker's beautiful new hand-painted ceramic shuttles. Isn't it gorgeous? It's my second favorite shuttle from Sherry. My most favorite is my Diane shuttle, which is in cobalt blue with tatting impressed into the ceramic.
I also took some time to finish blinging some more Clover shuttles. These are for Ann, a thank-you for my wonderful tatting press. I was hoping they would arrive by Valentine's Day, and they did. I hope you enjoy them, Ann!
Yes, I have been tatting, but I have nothing completed to show you. These are the pieces I'm working on. The blue is some Lizbeth that I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby. The pink/red is HDT from Krystledawne. The blue Aero shuttle is from LaCossette. The other shuttles are ones that I decorated.
I think these are all the shuttles I received this week... a win from eBay, my wonderful ceramic shuttle, and two more beauties from LaCossette.
I guess I've been a little self-indulgent. Oh, well... the bills are all paid, so I guess it's okay. : )
