Happy Saturday! Now that the winter semester is done and I feel good as new, I'm finally getting some tatting done. I've been meaning to post all week, but I got caught up in reading everyone else's blogs that I forgot. There's just so many of them now it boggles my mind.
I'd like to show you all some goodies I found on eBay! Tatting related items have become very hot. The pickings are not as good as they used to be and when I do find something, there's usually a pretty active bidding war for if. I am such an addict it's not even funny -- more like pathetic. The mailman hates me. He doesn't even bother hiding it. He just throws the packages at my door and walks away. I'm pretty sure it makes his day when he hits the door just right and knocks the wreath down. Jerk.
Anyhow, here is a shuttle carved from bog wood inlaid with malachite. It's so pretty I think I may just get a shadow box and display it.
I found this book for $2.00. When Cluny fever strikes again, I'll be ready. The illustrations are not too clear, but since it was so cheap I can't complain.
The crown jewel of my latest eBay finds! It's Ben Fikkert's Floriade. Beautiful, beautiful patterns. I've been wanting this one ever since I saw a very colorful doily on Celtic Dream Weaver's blog.
