In the meantime, I have started Doily VI from Jan Stawasz's Tatted Treasures. The thread is Lizbeth size 20 in Root Beer Float. I will probably only go through Row 4. Just wanted to make something quick and easy for an engagement gift. The happy couple with be visiting in a couple of weeks.
I also have a lanyard to make my hubby (a request from Tat Days). There is also a pendent on my to do list for my daughter from a couple of years ago. Now is probably a nice time to get that item done as well. I seem to be in a tatting gift mode.

Had to try my hands at decoupaging a shuttle. I like Tinkerbell. I found some stickers near greeting cards at a store. The directions were ones that Lace-lovin' Librarian and Decoromana have on their blogs. The first try resulted in a not so smooth top. Using very fine sandpaper, it was sanded down and restarted. This is the result of the second try. Much better but not perfect. I only did one side. I do have some fabric and two other shuttles to play with. I see a possible shuttle for every holiday in the future!
