New Tatting Books

Right before Christmas I treated myself to two new Tatting books. The first one is by Heather at The Tarnished Tatter blog, "Motifs A Many" There are 35 motifs in her book. They are quick and easy to tat up. I also bought one of Heather's tatting shuttles that she made. It is so cute and fits nice in my hand. I tatted most of the motifs with Heather's own HDT. Here are some of the motif's I tatted. I think my favorite one in this bunch orange and cream colored one on the bottom row in the middle and also the little one done in white thread. I still have lots more to tat out of this book.

Also for Christmas I ordered myself a copy of
Marilee's (Yarnplayer) new book "Boutique Tatting". I can't wait to try out some of the patterns in this book. I have quite a few of Marilee's HDT's and my latest one is the Pansy color. I got some pretty beads to use with this thread. Maybe this will be my next project.

I haven't had time to tat in the last few days, I've been too busy. Maybe tonight I will try to tat. I know I won't be able to tat Thursday, Friday or Saturday. I have something going on each of those nights.

Happy Tatting everyone!
