|And this isn't even the bulk of it!!|
I love storage boxes - and I'm always on the lookout for ones that might work for tatting supplies and materials. I think I've written about these before, but so far, I've not found any that are better - - so these are still da bomb.
I'm also finding treasures! I have tried to get a pair of each of the commemorative Palmetto Tat Days shuttles each year; here are the 2010 "Fall Into Tatting" pair.
These are the 2011 shuttles; curiously, the one without the point is the same on both sides, whereas the one with the point has "Tatting in a Winter Wonderland" on one side and the large snowflake on the other. I don't know if anyone else's are like this or not, but I wonder!
I do use my commemoratives, but I haven't yet used these - I'm not sure why, at least with the latest ones. The first two pairs were tucked into a plastic box that used to house a backup tape (I rescued it from a trip to the trash, and recycled it into a handy box for shuttles and whatnot!),
These are from this year; even though it was the first weekend in September, it feels like ages ago! This lovely design commemorated our 10th Annual Tat Days, and, sadly, we were told that these are the last laser-cut commemoratives we'll have from The Shuttle Shop as they won't be making them anymore. I hate that - I love their shuttles, and there are still so many designs I wanted to buy!
Work is still overtime, overtime, overtime. We've already been told we'll be working next weekend, but that by the end of this month, things will have settled down. I hope so! I need some time to tat, to think about tatting, and to design. I hope to apply to teach at Palmetto Tat Days again this year, and I'll need something to teach if I'm selected!
Oh, and last week's title - about the light at the end of the tunnel? False alarm; maybe next month!
