Shuttlebirds 2013 SWAG

Here are a few things I picked up this year at Shuttlebirds. Three new editions to the library; A Handsome Tatted Hat, by L.L. Peterson, put together by Mary McCarthy, Thirteen Bell Patterns, put together by Terry McGuffin, (I bought some bell ornaments too), and finally Tatting Collage by Lyndsay Rogers. Tatting Collage is a delightful little book and I hope to be tatting from it very soon.

You might recognize these little doohickies. I have been looking for them everywhere and have never found them anywhere. They were given away as party favors so I finally got my hands on a few. These will also be showing up in my near future tatting.

Check this out, I WON something in a raffle.
Folks, if it requires luck, I NEVER win anything and I mean NEVER....but I guess I can't say that anymore. I've been trying to win this shuttle winder for a couple of years now, so you can imagine how excited I was to hear my name called! Whoo hoo! There will be more Shuttlebirds updates coming soon.

Great loot! Just think, you could use your 1920s lace to decorate your tatted hat!
