It's Here! It's Here! I absolutely adore this shuttle. Oak leaves and acorns have been a favorite motif of mine ever since I can remember. I put off bidding until late. Georgia did tell me there were more like this in the works, so if I didn't win it, I could try again. What if the next one has red leaves, or brown and purple leaves? sigh...temptation..and it came in this Christmasy tin to boot!

Thanks to everyone who commented on the butterfly bookmark. I agree - a ribbon would distract from the tatting. I'll try using it without anything for awhile. I can always add a tail or tassle later. This butterfly motif in this particular way has inspired me to try something else. At the moment, I'm knitting a second mitten so I want to get that done first....although I get bored doing the same thing too much.


My aunt who was visiting from Texas last week commented that I could say hi to her now and then from the blog. She's probably thinking....."I'd rather have that bookmark." LOL!

I started walking the treadmill again which I really needed to get back to, but it takes up so much time after walking an hour, showering, and then eating dinner that it shoots half my evening and then I don't have much time for tatting or anything. I'm skipping it tonight so I can get more done. I'm going to try to get my gingerbread boy pattern in the links in the sidebar. I had so much fun making him last year. Or was it the year before?

I was in Walmart the other day and found some buttons and ribbon that I'm anxious to play with but they aren't Christmasy so maybe I'll wait. Actually, I better get busy for some exchange deadlines coming up.

  1. The shuttle is beautiful. I am so jealous! (I like the tin too.) I bet your aunt would like to have the bookmark! I'd love to see the gingerboy pattern!
