It has been a busy day! I am totally exhausted and I still have a number of hours to go!
Im not sure what took me so long to think of it, but I headed to the library today to check out their embroidery book collection. Four books later I decided whilst I was there that I would check out their collection of Tatting books.
Whilst I was at a quilt show last weekend I found some lovely ladies who were working away steadily at something that looked both scary and totally interesting! It turns out that there is a lovely lady's couple of suburbs over who teaches all sorts of tatting!
In true me fashion I have already started playing about with it. Here are my attempts so far:
Another task on my to do list was to finally send off a package that I have been meaning to send off for a little while! Whilst I was at the post office - actually I sent Jacob in to the post office and I hit the crafty store because I was trying to see if I could get my hands on a set of tatting shuttles ASAP! (I failed though that's another story.)
We had a bit of time to kill before we had to go to school to collect the rug rats and what do I find? A lifeline store!
Inside I found the following:
What you see here is:
One double bed quilt cover
Two single bed quilt covers and
One pillow case.
What do I plan to do with them you might ask?
I plan to make a quilt! Everything I need fabric wise should be in that pile!
I'll keep you posted!
