Guess what I found in the mail when I finally got home last night??? See the pretty wrapping below! What a clever use of novelty yarn!

Wendy at Umi & Tsuru has been offering a bit of tatting in a monthly giveaway. Well....I like to get as much as I like to give so I entered when she had the book thong and won it! And then the mail somehow burgered it up and returned the empty envelope to her and so she made another and sent it to me.

It's really cool! I immediately put it in my DMC Book of Charted Tatting Patterns. I may put it in one I'm actually using in the moment but I wanted to see how it looked in the book and it's fabulous. I might have to make one myself!

I'm actually working on a crochet sample for my lace guild that I'll be teaching a week from Saturday. I had one made up but in a smaller thread than called for and I wanted to make the base simpler so now I have to make sure it works. My house is a mess since I haven't been home or able to do anything for several weeks now. They are reroofing my house this weekend so I'll stay home for part of it and get something done for a change.

I was shopping at Von's (our famous bead store) last night before a dinner meeting and had Marie in mind. Dear patient woman....she deserves something a little extra, don't you think?


  1. Congrats on winning that book thong! :)

  2. I am glad you'll put it to good use Gina.
