I'm pretty sure she's caught the tatting bug, let me tell you why I think so.
- She has more shuttles then she can use at any given time and carries the new ones around ever where she goes.... still in their packages.
- Last Friday she placed a Handy Hands order and ordered MORE shuttles .... different kinds and colors .... a book and 10+ spools of Lizabeth threads.
- She has already visited Etsy and scored some lovely HDTs, some she gifted to me!!
- She has spent hours searching the internet for patterns and probably just as many hours looking thru the books I loaned her.
Last Thursday I noticed the giraffe bag, next I noticed the giraffe on her necklace. Humm giraffes, is there a pattern here? Then Friday I went to her office on a work related matter and I noticed there were giraffes every where. How did I miss this ? So giraffes it is then.
Tomorrow I am leaving home for a week, but rather then spend the weekend preparing to be away from home, I spent it tatting giraffes to make Peg a fabric postcard.
They are made with Tatskool's Antique Bronze HDT, using the pattern from my autographed copy (*smile*) of Martha Ess' More Critters on the Block.
