Eliz has finished the Cecelia doily. An earlier picture, shown here has 40 motives completed of the 48 planned. She received a new Lacis shuttle for Christmas along with four new books: Dianna Stevens' Animal Bookmarks, A Tatted Zoo; Karey Solomon's Tatting Turns Over a New Leaf; Inga Madsen's 12 Tatted Fairy-Tales; and Nancy Tracy's Tat's Where I Stopped. This yellow Oak Leaf was one of the designs from Karey Solomon's Tatting Turns Over a New Leaf. The other 3 are from Dianna Stevens' Animal Bookmarks. The snake and the cockerel were designed by Dianna Stevens and the cat was designed by Diana Howe. The last image is butterfly variation 4A from Teri Dusenbury's book, Tatting Butterflies.
I've just clued in to the fact that Kate's blog has entries written by both her and Lars. Lars has posted his own review of 3 movies seen recently.
Snowy's Christmas present to herself is a pretty pair of Shuttle Shop shuttles. She has been using them to tat Sadie's heart from Teri Dusenbury's site, she's not sure about it and thinks she might do it again in a solid colour.
Laura tatted the Christmas tree from the Be-stitched newsletter and she used DMC Cebelia which is a bit soft to hold it's shape. Laura thinks it would look good with pearl beads added to the tips like snow on a branch. Laura is really excited to be able to do her own scans of her tatting. It's nice to have someone do it for you, but nothing beats being able to do it for yourself how you want, when you want and with the background you want. Isaac is in his second year of being spoiled by grandma. Laura wishes all of her tatty friends a Happy New Year.Charlene has posted her reflections on 2007.
Melissa shows us some sweet ornaments given and received in an exchange.
Sherry continues to work on the TAT program and tatted a very beady motif as part of the exercise. She has a new Shuttle of the Month for January which will probably be the last for a while due to her upcoming move. She has also dyed a new thread this one is called "Tie Dye Purple" and similar "Tie Dye Rust" is in the works.
