Tat Days - Part 2
The shuttles are from Rita Richmond - Shuttle By Design. I asked her if it was possible to have a shuttle with the "P" available for pickup at Tat Days. She was able to accommodate my request. I tried to be good but she has new acrylic shuttles and the blue one was calling out to me.
The mini shuttles were 3-d printed by Tim Kaylor. These were in the goodie bags. They are nice for smaller amounts of thread projects.
The tatted projects are Tat Days test pieces. The navy/gold and dark pink bracelet strips are from Martha Ess' Starry Bracelet class. Navy has beads, the dark pink - no beads. Will finish the navy with bracelet findings for Granddaughter. The bear was tatted in size 10 (pattern called for size 10, but 10 was all I had on vacation to tat the project). It is from Martha Ess' Technique Teddy Bear class. The red/white star is another Martha Ess design. It is her Broomstick Picot Star. The navy angel is a design by Kathy Hodge called Guardian Angel. All the tatted pieces can be found on the Palmetto Tat Days 2016 CD.
The book was a last minute kind of gotta have purchase. With the arrival of a Grandson this past April, he will need some tatted items as well. This book has 3-d projects (a train, trees, and several buildings).
Lastly - not Tat Days related - Marilee Rockley aka Yarnplayer has a new book of tatted beaded jewelry coming out in November. Check her blog for info on presales through Amazon.com. I have mine on preorder.
Sigh, so many projects, so little time!
