Ooh, I got mail! Yes, I got junk mail and bills, but no, that's not the mail I was looking for! I got two wonderful things in the mail! I got may pattern from Quilt Taffy that I ordered. Sunday Best. It is a Schnibbles pattern and you've seen these all over blogland. I saw this one on someone's blog and I can't remember who's, but I loved it. They had done this pattern in Shangri-la fabric. I have enough left overs from my last quilt to do this pattern and just had to order it...I'm anxious to start working on this one. I have to have patience though because I've got to quilt my Quilts For Kids quilt before I can start anything! I'll be a good girl and do that first.
I also got my prize from Shell over at The Raspberry Rabbit site. Thanks Shell, the scissors and pincushion are lovely. I LOVE the little rabbit scissors! Pictures just don't do these justice! Shell even sent chocolate! Of course, it was Raspberry chocolate, love it! Lovely gift, I was such a lucky girl to win these!
Last night, I had a sweet lady from Oklahoma come and stay with me. Gina from Oklahoma came down and visited us for tatting. She showed us how to do the Single Shuttle Split Ring. I have practiced this a little and got a few little dimpled hearts done...This is still a little slow for me but at least I can do it now. I tried to do it previously with instructions but just didn't get it. Thanks, Gina for showing us how to do it...My group loved you and want you to come back and visit anytime! You were very helpful!
Ron, Gina's son, also made us some Tatting Tuesday buttons! (See the purple buttons on the corners) Aren't they cute? Wasn't that sweet of Ron? Thank you, Ron, we love the little buttons!
