Pretty New Shuttle

I was one of the lucky winners of Mary Donohue's decorated shuttle giveaway.  She did a great job decorating both shuttles.  Here is the package that I received.  The Shuttle is beautiful!  Also included was a ball of size 40 Anchor thread and a bag of red beads that will be perfect for the tatted ribbon trees that I will be making for Christmas presents.  Thank you so much Mary.  I love all the goodies and the shuttle is awesome.
Happy tatting,

Wishing All A Happy Easter!

HE is Alive!

Here are motifs 16 & 17 of the Motif Challenge.

Egg #12 tatted in HDT color "Snowflake" by Marilee Rockley 
Motif #17
 Egg #23 tatted in another HDT color "Cloud 9" also by Marilee Rockley
Easter tree 2012
Here is my Easter tree with 15 eggs on it.  I am done with eggs for this year.  Maybe the rest of the eggs in the TATTED EASTER EGG book by Kirsten Wind Hansen will be added to the tree next year.  I really wanted to tat all 24 eggs--but ran out of time.  The eggs were simple to tat.  However,  most of them required some thought to decipher the instructions.  The instructions could be a little more clear.

Happy tatting,

A Baker's Dozen

Here is motif challenge #15.  It is egg #18 from the same book.  Tatted in Lizbeth Salmon Med., of course size 20.  This turned out to be a sweet egg.  However, I am not a fan of dimpled rings as I usually end up breaking the thread while closing.  I had to start over three times before I figured out how to close the ring without breaking the thread.  Thank you Jane E. for your tips and techniques pages.  The explanation is so clear and so helpful.  This is the thirteenth egg.

It's Here and I love it!!!  Sherry Pence's new book.  Great job LadyShuttleMaker - beautiful patterns. I am so glad I purchased it.
Happy tatting,
