Tollway Tatters (part three)

tatted a stunning piece with metal doodat + beads
photo of it finished, on her blog post - HERE.
The motif from the ever popular
Minitats by Patti Duff book.
Am I spotting a new shuttle ??? a blue shuttle??? 
Could it be one of the new Aerlit bobbin shuttles?

And, we revisited the split ring.
These made by Diane.
Seems both Denise and I make them
in a similar way - without causing
so much pain in the hand!!!!

Woot - now Diane will be off to the races with split rings
in her patterns.   No stopping her now ; )

Our new challenge pieces --- THREE of them ...
oh my, who knows what the creative tatters will end up with ; )
I confess I'm not finished the first doo dat challenge.
Didn't get the tatting started - did have a couple diagrams/notes started.

Diane had some gifts to share ... a new to me fiber to try,
and blingged shuttles!   Floral and Cherries.   Both so pretty + glittery.
Then, come to find, her generosity continues with oodles
of doodats and beads to choose!!!   Awesome stash builders.
thank you ever so much Diane.

I adore this photo of Diane and Eva!
Eva is learning how to tat + is moving right along
making chains:
Eva also went around the table
and took photos for Diane.
She is the sweetest peach!

Hang on now ... there is more, are you wondering about those nifty new shuttles?   Stay tuned.
