TIAS 2011 has landed.

My airplane has finally reached its destination. It was completed the same day Jane posted day 10. However, due to undue turbulence with the camera and time, the plane had to circle in an extended holding pattern until now. Jane, thank you for providing us with so much fun. I enjoy the TIAS' so much.

Happy Tatting,

Here are the latest additions to my shuttle collection.
These two shuttles came from Sherry Pence (Ladyshuttlemaker). My dear husband gave me the green one for Christmas. Then he purchased the handpainted one for my birthday when she introduced them in her Etsy shop. This one is an acrylic one that Erin Hinton made. I tatted the inside pieces in Lizbeth's Harvest Vineyard size 20. This one is the newest one that Erin and Chris are making. They all are lovely and so different. I have used each one and they tat wonderfully. I do love beautiful shuttles. Now, I need to check Diane's bling bling shuttles.
All of these are incredible in their own way. They are such a pleasure to tat with. The pictures do not do them justice. The ceramic ones feel so cool in your hands. The acrylic one is light as a feather, and of course there is nothing like tatting with a wooden shuttle.
Thank you Sherry, Erin and Chris for making such lovely shuttles.

I'm a winner

I was one of Isdihara's ChocoLove winners. Pink thread is one of my favorite colors. The chocolate bar sounds delicious. I have lost my sense of taste and smell, so I am waiting until it returns to try it. I don't know how she chose who received which colors--but she did a great job matching me with the pink. Thank you Isdihara for a perfect happy.
