The winner will be announced on Friday October 8th 2010.

However, I can no longer afford to ship my giveaway prizes internationally.
If you live somewhere other than the U.S., PR, AK, HI, or Canada and you still want to enter, you must agree to pay the shipping charges.


**************************************



I think we tatters like to play the game of "Where's Tatting?"....kind of like "Where's Waldo?". It is always a little thrilling to discover tatting outside of our tatting world. Well I found some tatting on the cover of a new book called Layered, Tattered and Stitched by Ruth Rae. She is an artist who re-purposes found items and creates collages of all sorts. I am not sure she even knows that she has put tatting on her cover...but no matter...I think it's cool!

...and here is my latest belly picture....I am now officially a belly with a person attached.
HAPPY MONDAY!!!

Aww! Your belly is cute! Congrats on 35 weeks -- hopefully it will be smooth sailing for here!

The only tatting sighting I've had is a small teach yourself to knit, crochet, and tat book at the local Michael's. Does that count?

Please enter me in your drawing! (2)

Sherry,
I love the fact that you are feeling much better. Your belly is very cute to see as is the huge smile on your face wonderful to see. I think it's cool that you found that book too. Sure you can add me in your drawing if you would like.

Donna said...

You look GREAT! I know it's been tough - hang in there.

Ridgewoman said...

Glad to see you looking well and a baby attached to the whole person LOL

Your workbaskets look in much better condition than those I fell 'heir' to…:>)

Do not enter me in your drawing. I have such a big stash and so many books, I'm rather embarrassed by my opulence. LOL That's why I gift things so often. One can only actually, realistically use so many books (but I just bought five more!) LOL

Still praying for good health and progress for you my darlin' girl.

I would love to be entered for your giveaway! One can never have too much HDT! I don't see too much tatting around here, but then I haven't really been looking either. I guess I should. It's great to see you smiling! I'm glad you and Picadilly are doing well!

Please enter me for that beautifully colored thread.

Way to hang in there with the baby! I'm sorry your pregnancy has been so difficult. Hope your last few weeks will be as much better than the first 35 as they are shorter.

Sherry, you look so happy! When you hold your baby for the first time you will realize that it was all worth it! Love the Fuchsia silk color. Have just the right idea for it, so please enter me in your drawing.

Deb said...

My mom used to get Workbasket for many years. She had knitted so many lovely things from those magazines.

You're looking great! It won't be long before you'll be cuddling your baby.

I was OVERJOYED to see that photo of you looking so great! It really made my day!

I'd LOVE to win another skein of your thread, and I always enjoy looking at Workbaskets, as I have only a few. I envy those who have a 'whole collection'!

You're also doing a great job on that Patchwork pattern - great color choices (of course, you're an expert at that), and such nice work.

Keep 'taking it easy'. It's almost October!

Lily said...

Happy Monday to you too, Sherry!!

Love the full belly pic :)

I think pregnant women are among some of the most beautiful women in the world

Can wait to see baby Picadilly! I bet she'll look just like her momma!

Also, just to let you know - I love your thread. So far, I've only worked with the faeries - I can't bring myself to use the silk or the other colors yet (they're all too pretty to handle)!

You are looking lovely!

Gill said...

Hi - I am new to tatting, but I read your blog a few weeks ago and am so glad to hear you are well (& look great). Will any of your shuttles be unglazed? I would love to try some decorative painting on them
