generous tatters gather!

The Tollway Tatters met last Saturday.    Tatting chat, sharing, purchasing, reviewing of books ... and tatting!

Sweetheart Sue Anna, blogging at Sue Anna's blog,  generously gifting new shuttles from Handy Hands.   I selected a Mango Sorbet Moonlet and a Sparkle Fuschia Sunlit.

 These are blingged shuttles by Diane, blogging at Lace-lovin' Librarian.   She uses Boye brand shuttles, removes the pic, and embellishes.   I selected these shuttles from her magic box!    [photos of front and back].

Oh my, what lush fibers from Marilee.   Oodles of fun to select fibers in variety of sizes and colorways.   Not sure what these will be tatted into - but will enjoy each skein.  

Oh, Etsy, how I adore my new stash.   Yarnplayer's HDTs.

Pretty woven bag, made by Diane's Mom, fundraiser.   Superb weaving.   Such a charming bag.   Looking forward to seeing Diane's new creations once her loom lessons begin.   Keep an eye out for buttons - 1.5" - 2" - let Diane know when you come across bargains on interesting button finds.

Lovely tatting being created by Barbara, Sue Anna, Marilee, Diane, Julie and I.    Check out the blogs for details [Sue Anna said she'd post soon].  Alison moving along on her crochet and Ava shared her Rainbow Loom creations.   Colorful and Delightful.   We missed a couple tatters -- Denise,  Tatting Lace in Grace + Just Give Her Some String.   Diane has a post on her blog with more photographs ... link HERE.     Marilee, blogging at Yarnplayer's Tats , also took some photographs - keep an eye on her blog for updates ....

I am participating in the Online Tatting Class, group project - link to blog HERE - - The project is to tat and share 40 patterns of Nellie Hall Youngburg.    link to pattern book in this post, link HERE.   While with the Tollway Tatters, I started motif #24, with Lizbeth size 20, color 164.    While I tatted, I started a diagram... I think I have it figured out.

Had some more fiber + beads on a shuttle:
so pretty + fun to share.    I use Grace Tan's pattern, Three Little Hearts.    
Grace blogs at Grace Tats.
