Happy TATTING day!

A lot has happened since my last post. First off, hubby and I went skydiving on Sunday morning. It was awesome and just like I always imagined it would be. We flew to 13,500 feet and somersaulted out of the plane for a 60 second free fall before the parachutes opened. It was exhilerating and not for one second was I ever nervous. However, that is probably because I had an home art show later that day and I was very nervous for that.
Monday I had a long aweful root canal and today I had it crowned so my mouth feels pretty terrible right now. This morning's doc comes in and says, "So how was the root canal?" and I replied in the most cheery voice I could muster, "It was awesome! I wish every day was root canal day!" She laughed!
I was lying there for two hours thinking, "I jumped out of an airplane...I can handle this..." but I wasn't convincing myself very well.

The art show went fantastically and I am ever so pleased. We played classical music, had wine, cheese and chocolate available and hopefully brought a little culture into our friends lives.
I made almost enough money to pay for this dentistry and for that I am thankful.

On to tatting related stuff:
I have a new favorite personal shuttle and surprisingly it is a large one. I have small hands and prefer to use small shuttles but I have a big project to work on and I thought "Why not give it a try?". So I chose this shuttle and to my delight is holds 50 yards of size 20 tatting thread, it also feels quite comfortable in my hands. Yippee for trying new things!

Happy Tatting Day!

Aren't you the brave little girl? I could never do that! I'm glad you had fun, that the mouth feels better and that your art show went well. Of course it did! The shuttle is awesome!

You are a brave young woman... I'll take the root canal any day!

Your shuttles are wonderful! You have several I would love to purchase, but I'm going to have to wait a while. One of my favorites has already been purchased... I guess I wasn't meant to have that one! I'll keep looking!

Thanks Laura!

Diane, you would rather have a root canal than go skydiving? You are the brave one...yikes!

You are definately the spunkiest tatter I've ever known; skydiving and all. Happy Tatting Day to you, too. I've celebrated by trying to figure out my very complicated camera(so I can take pics of tatting) and eating chocolate. I hope you get feeling better soon.

Sherry, you are amazing! No way would I ever jump out of an airplane.

That is awesome about you and your hubby went sky diving ........ Sherry, you are one brave lady!!! I say that more for the fact that you went thru a root canal then that you went sky diving. :-)
