Since I made my very first Hook Pen I have wanted to do Customized Pens and some of you have even emailed me with suggestions. I had to wait for an order of white pens to arrive (took forever...and they are more expensive than the colored ones...go figure).
I experimented with a custom hook pen/shuttle set for Suneeti pictured above. I created the image on the hook pen from some of my own actual tatting.
Anyhow, the possibilities are endless. You can choose your image and your hook size for your very own unique Tatting Hook Pen.
On another note: I got the estimate back from the company who is supposed to recovery data from my damaged hard drive. They quoted $645 and that does not include the brand new hard drive I had to buy to replace the old one....that's another $169.....Oh and that doesn't even guarantee full data recovery.
I'm thinking this is totally OUTRAGEOUS...and there is no way I can afford this expense...especially with Christmas around the corner.
I will need to come to terms with losing everything. 13 years of photos, travel, family, special writings, tatting books in progress (yes I had some more books nearly ready to publish) music...everything.
I am numb just sitting here in a state of shock.
I can't wait for 2009 to be over with...it sure has been one tough year!
