Lazy days...

I am suddenly feeling very lazy, and I'm not accomplishing much. However, I have managed to bling some more shuttles! I liked the roses so much, I decided to do another batch. What will I do with them all? I really don't know right now.

Granddaughter Eva, the one who wants to learn how to tat is going to get a special birthday gift this year... blinged shuttles, and her very own beginning tatting book! Knots in Thread by Sparrow Kelley has wonderful large illustrations, large print, and 6 simple patterns, perfect for a 10-year-old! There's even a template for making picot gauges in the back. I can hardly wait for her birthday party on Sunday!

I bought a package of these napkins when I was out shopping earlier in the week. I think the shuttles look perfect for a little girl, and I have enough left from the napkin to decorate several more shuttles. I think Grandma might need a set to match Eva's!

The question now is, what shall I do with the 11 remaining napkins? How about a giveaway? The first 11 people to email their mailing info to me will get one of these cheerful napkins. Let the blinging begin!


  1. AliceGap, somehow I deleted your comment. I do apologize. Here's the copy and paste version...

    I'm from Brazil. I love your blog that i found looking for tatting in the web.
    These napkins are so beautiful!!

  2. Love the shuttles! ♥ I think I love them even more because you didn't go with the obvious placement with the patterns... I think I would have been so focused on the petal-shapes in the blue and green that I wouldn't have even thought of how pretty it would look without them present! I can't want to see what you do with the red napkin!!! It's so pretty!

  3. Look forward to seeing what lucky Eva makes with her new shuttles and book.

  4. i have clover with the oval indent in them.
    I love the way you bling yours!

  5. Lovely shuttles, I am sure she will love one. I am teaching my grand daughter to tat at the moment, it's nice to pass tatting on to a younger generation


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
