Lost in a good book

I was a good girl today and started off by cleaning bathrooms and grocery shopping, and then I got home...

Yes, I am loving learning about band weaving! Mom got me started on it. I haven't done nearly as much as she has, but she's been weaving for a lot longer than I have. I am fascinated!

My new fascination has not kept me from tatting Ice Drops. I am drawn to them, like a moth to a flame.

I don't think I've duplicated any one I've made, although some have been similar to others. I feel a little guilty that I haven't tried out all the variations that other tatters have shared, but I like the fact that I can tat the original pattern with variations and never look at a pattern. 😊

I was very excited to open them mail today! Aren't these shuttles from Rita Richmond adorable? They may be my new favorite Moonlit shuttles!


  1. More great Ice Drops!! :)
    Fabulous looking shuttles!!! :)

  2. Is band weaving the same as card weaving? I got a book out of the library once about card weaving, but didn't actually try it. I shall watch your learning journey with interest!

    1. Card weaving is a bit different. I read up about it and even bought all of the supplies several years ago. However, it was way too complicated for me, so I gave it all away to another person who showed interest.

      From what I understand, the band weaving pattern is formed by the warp threads, and designs can be added by picking up warp threads and creating floats on the top. I may be able to explain it better some day!

  3. Oh the weaving is so tempting to want to try, but for now just like to look at it!

  4. One day I would like to try a weaving project. Your shuttles are always so lovely!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
