Ellen has been showered with gifts recently including an exquisite mother-of-pearl lacquerware box, an MP3 player and a pair of rings because she couldn't decide which one she wanted.

Arlene tatted Teri Dusenbury's "Sadie's Heart" in Marilee's 'Nectarine' HDT using two tatting guild shuttles from the Shuttle Shoppe. The butterfly shuttles are also from the Shuttle Shoppe.
Bev tatted 25 of these crosses as favors at a LWML Guild meeting brunch that she hosted. The three notes are destined for a denim bag and were done in black thread using motifs from Patti Duff's, Mini Tats. Finally we have a celtic motif experiment done in variegated Perfect quilter thread in blue/green. Carol is keeping up with her resolutions and has already made the Violet Doily by Abby Hegwald.
Diane has been suffering from tatting withdrawal, so she loaded up her new Jan Stawasz shuttles and got to work on a Spinning Wheel glass mat. The Stawasz shuttles are meant for working with size 10 thread.
