Since July was a slow month on my blog, I decided to update everything right now. I was a bit busy shopping for more craft supplies and patterns. :)
|New patterns for work and some Steampunk cosplay.|

I came across the Craftsy site and they had a shuttle tatting class with Marilee Rockley
. I wanted to sign up, but I decided to look around the internet for inspiration before I jumped into a new craft. I came across Diane's Lace-Lovin' Librarian blog
. She has a lot of pretty pictures and had reviews about different tatting shuttles. Because of her reviews I decided to buy my tatting supplies from Handy Hands (www.hhtatting.com
). Then I came across Heather's Tatted Treasures blog
and her tutorials. With her wonderful videos I was able to learn how to tat in a few hours. I can't wait to try out new patterns!
|Package from Handy Hands. My tatting supplies have arrived.|
|My goodies. Some threads, tatting shuttles, picot gauge, thread holder, |
catalog, and newsletter.
|Pretty purple threads.|
|Different tatting shuttles. Clover, Lacis Sew Mate, and Starlit.|
|Thread holder with free Lizbeth thread.|
|Puppy pile up... they were tired after watching me learn how to tat lace.|
|My first project - butterfly! It's so tiny.|
Now we're all up-to-date! I hope to work on all my different project - knit, crochet, sew, embroider, and tat. I just have to spend a day on each and finish a project before hopping to the next one. We'll see!
