Unloading of the shuttles.


This week I came to the same realization that Gina did.


No empty shuttles!



Not a single one. So, this of course means that some UFO's need finishing. First up to bat, a doily pattern from This book.

Ok, I will admit to having left off the last round. I like it better this way. Or I'm lazy. Who cares right? I like the finished product.

The thread is by Heather Johnston, called Ruths Irish. I thought the black background made it stand out better.

I also finished a pair of earrings and listed them in the shop. Hark. It's tuesday and I tatted!

It looks gorgeous! I ♥ the pattern and it does look like just the way it is. I love Teiko's work! She has some of the loveliest patterns around!
That thread you used of Heather's is lovely!

The doily is gorgeous and the black background DOES set it off! Glad you have an empty shuttle now. (grin)
