Not an hour after my last post and my order from Nancy at Be-Stitched.com arrived in the mail! My treat to myself included Jan Stawasz's Tatted Treasures and The Tatter's Treasure Chest. I also bough an Aerlit shuttle to try out! Some of the lovely ladies at my last tatting class had these types of shuttles with a crochet hook for the point of the shuttle and removable bobbins. I have always had about half a dozen shuttles, still wound with thread, laying around..... so I'm curious to see if the bobbins are a bit more versatile then the standard shuttle with a shaft, like the Clovers or Lacis (even if those are my personal favs).
I can't wait to see what kind of edging and bookmark patterns are in these books for the possibility of more headbands! Toodles!
