When I got home last night, there was an unexpected package from Singapore in the mailbox. I was expecting some mail but not from Singapore, so this was a DELIGHTFUL SURPRISE! See the added bling??? Isn't it gorgeous?

I've been coveting one of these shuttles. If you've read this blog for long you probably know that in spite of a huge shuttle collection, I consider the Clovers my "working shuttles" and use them almost exclusively. This is a much appreciated gift from Umintsuru. Thank you so much! If I wasn't in the middle of a somewhat difficult T.A.T. project that requires close concentration, I would have immediately loaded this up and tatted with it. I tried really hard to finish it, but burning eyes said to STOP. Tuesday night for sure!

I was lucky enough to be asked to test tat it. It is quick and easy unless you are adding beads and those take only a bit longer.

This is my favorite.
I forgot to snip his feet!

Barbie doll purse! That was my first idea for this piece - that it was the perfect size for a doll bag. By the time I got around to blogging, I'd forgotten about it mostly and kept thinking of a cat instead. I said "mostly" because I kept feeling like I'd forgotten one of my ideas. You see how fleeting they are? WRITE THEM DOWN!


  1. I like the bling on your shuttle! The softer color is so nice. I really like the dragonfly pattern, and the blue is my favorite!

  2. Now I am wondering what you are currently tatting. Glad you now have one pastel Clover of your own. It does look like a cat with a bow as a collar.

  3. Love that beaded blue dragonfly! And love the bling!

    I am going to start the two-coloured rose this evening. I am really drawn to this motif, as you have tatted it.
