In a delirious state last week I went crazy with my shopping order at Handy Hands.
I justify this splurge by reminding myself that the only things I have bought since I have been in my new country is a plant, a needle minder from Grizzly Mountain Arts and threads to dye. None the less, I don't regret it and I am ecstatic; it feels like Christmas today.
I bought a BUNCH of tatting books.
Oooh I am giddy all over! These are books I have been eyeing for a long time....and seeing many of them getting great reviews on other tatting blogs, I just couldn't wait any longer.
We have Karey Solomon, Rosmarie Peel, Martha Ess, Inga Madsen, Iris Neibach (X2), Christel Weidmann, Mark Meyers, Diana Stevens (X3), Georgia Seitz, and Ben Fikkert.
Oh my goodness...I am floating on clouds.
I skimmed through all of them and it's a tough decision but the one I think I would like to tat from first is Tatted Farm Animals by Christel Weidmann. Her designing skills are awe inspiring. I now have a mountain of treasures to tat from in the event that I should ever get bored....(**pause for maniacal laughter**).
It will be awhile before I get to sit down and tat from other designers but it is comforting to know the option is there.
Oh, I feel sooooo spoiled!
Thank you Handy Hands for your excellent customer service!
According to my hubby, Col. Song LOVES his bookmark. I also included a thank you note that I wrote in both English and Hangul. Apparently I translated "Song" as to "Sing a song", instead of the name and that quite tickled Col. Song. But he said the rest of the translation was pretty good.
We are well into monsoon season here and with all the moisture it is taking three times as long for my HDT's to dry....so I am getting a little behind in posting them in the shop. The bright side is that the air is getting cleaned, even if just for a short while and it is a blessed relief to be able to breathe the fresh air.
