Rose and Thistle and lovely Gifts From the Mail


My daughters friends Tiffany found this large shuttle at a rummage sale and knew I tat and collect shuttles.   Margaret sent me this beautiful hand panted one all the way from England, thank you both I am so glad you thought of me.
This is another doily form the mastering tatting book that most people own, I have really enjoyed mixing colors and am very excited about the finished look.

The flip side of the Queen Elizabeth's shuttle Thank You both and all of you bloggers for visiting my blog even though I have been not keeping up like I should.
hugs from Carollyn.

    1. I do love this little pattern for the rose too and I switched the ends of flowers on every other one with the darker pink.

  4. So glad you liked your shuttle, That looks an interesting piece of tatting and lovely colours together.
    Nice to see you again blogging, I have not been blogging very much at the end of the year, with Vernon in hospital and then this bug that refuses to go, the blog was the last thing I was doing.
    Happy new year looking forward to seeing all your new beautiful ideas.
