Doodles, Lambie, gifts

Beginning the post with doodles.... made for Lafayette Lacemakers, Inc.    These are for business cards which are handed out at community events.     Hope to empty more shuttles soon ---

Here is my Leaping Lambie attempt from Tatting Times (Aug 2015) which I need to tat again !!!  I didnt quite get it right the first time.    Pattern c2015 Karey Solomon.

Below - Christmas in July gift from GF DW---- crochet pieces!    An inspiration to improve my crochet skills.

See how beautiful this motif is?  Tatted by GF DW --Pattern is from 

 Peikko"s book on Tatting Small Accessories.    [I bought one, misplaced it, bought another one -- found the first one + GF DW bought my new copy].     It is the motif shown on the front cover of the book!!

She also made a couple more motifs and attached to note.   

New acquisition - c.1942 The Spool Cotton Company.    The patterns are nice; however, the little bird tatting shuttle caught my eye + there were more inside ---  booklet starts "If a tatting shuttle could chirp it would probably trill."

 too charming .....
