I only tatted one Ice Drop today, again using thread left on shuttles. I don't know if you can see in the picture, but this ribbon has an edging that picks up the colors in the Green Coral Sea. It's very pretty in person!
The reason I didn't tat much was sewing! Denise called this morning and asked if I wanted to go fabric shopping at our local quilt shop. We don't have much to offer in our little town, but we do have a lovely quilt shop! Rocking Chair Quilts is owned by my friend Carol. Her daughters Katie and Annie were two of my favorite students during my teaching years. Carol made many of her daughters' clothes, and they were adorable. So, when Denise suggested a shopping trip, I said yes!
Carol's husband helps her run the shop, and he helps make the sample quilts that provide inspiration. Luckily, I can visit the shop whenever I like, but they also have an online presence. If you like to quilt, I hope you'll check out Carol's shop!
Yes, I did buy fabric and patterns. However, I decided that I needed to finish up some projects before diving in to something new. I had started these pin cushions months ago. I finished sewing, turning, and pressing 29 pin cushions today. They still need to be stuffed, sewn shut, and finished with buttons. Then I will allow myself to start with some of my new goodies!
Some new shuttles arrived in the mail today! I love Rita Richmond's shuttles, and when I saw these, I selfishly snapped them up. I believe I will start tatting with them tomorrow! 😘
