I found this cool idea for storing your brooches in a handy way at Craftystylish, which has lots of neat tips and tutorials.

Some comments about this form of display mentioned using thin mesh window-screen material instead of felt for earrings, or use a roll of rubberized shelf paper ... the kind with a pattern and small holes in it. It can be cut to fit inside a picture frame too, without the glass and works better with French Wire earrings than post. I'm thinking it would be a great way to show off tatting also.

A few years ago I bought a few shirts on ebay that featured an embroidered shuttle. The vendor was also able to embroider "Tatting Goddess" for a small addtional fee. I recently received this notice:

I am sending all of my former ebay customers a quick note to let you know that I now have my own website. You purchased a embroidered tatting shuttle shirt in the past. I have not been on ebay for a year now. I opened my own shop in the town I live in, and have just been concentrating on that. I hope that you were happy with your previous purchase and would like to purchase more items from me.

The website is here. I didn't see a specific reference anywhere about the embroidered shuttle but I'm sure you can contact her and ask. I'm still wearing the shirts. I only wear them to tatting events so they don't get a lot of wear and tear but they've held up to washing and drying quite well so far.

Blog surfing also led me to My Little Mochi which features a pdf version of the Origami Bag, which we referred to as the Dorset Bag a few years ago when Joy in Australia gave us instructions on how it was made. She didn't know the origin so she just named it "Dorset" for her own reference.

I got an additional side done on the hanky edging but have not had time to get back to it. I ended up designing one of the flowers for the Palmetto's fundraising book. I tried to avoid getting into that project because I really felt I didn't have time but ... whaddyaknow....I made it anyway. LOL!

I think Veronica might have her package by now and I can post the tatting done for that but it will have to wait until the next time.
