for tatted ice drops (my color selection tripled), gifting hand made tools (see the needle w/tatted tail for un-knotting), sharing charms,
Clover Japan, acrylics by Rita, shapes, sizes) , snacking, and gifts!!!
Lace-lovin' Librarian aka Diane, put several origami pouches together (rainbow of colors) a few years back. She thought we could embellish them with tatting! I selected a green one, and realized, once home, that I gift most of my tatting and didn't have much for the bag ; )
a special box (I stitched the top).
I pulled out the origami pouch, fused the tatting, added a (made by Diane) crochet button, a few beads and charms ... and before I knew it, the whole thing was covered!
On April 7th, I went to the International Quilt Festival. The quilts were incredible!
Beautifully / artfully displayed. Among the cool things in the many booths ... I purchased 2 beige shuttles ...
they were pretty scruffed and dirty w/awful gritty fiber. So, I cleaned them up a bit!
need to get a few 'promised' items made up and mailed this week. Happy Spring.
