IF you don't consider the stuff I had to BUY from Handy Hands to GET it!
Hmmmmm? Were you expecting some deeper thought or sentiment? I'm sorry, these days I only have time for shallow thoughts and deep breathing as we plunge into back-to-school mode.
I was VERY excited about making my first motif with clunies last week and wanted to do more cluny tatting. So I ordered a booklet, Cluny Tatting Designs by Joy Botchlet. It has been YEARS since I ordered from Handy Hands, so to stop there would have shown more restraint than I possess. Therefore it came as no surprise to me when I chucked Celtic Tatting Knots & Patterns by Rozella Linden, a couple more colors of Cebelia #30, and a GIGANTIC, "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves" shuttle made by Tatsy into my cart! When I pick up that shuttle I know how Baby Doll must feel when she gets hold of one of my clovers - like I got the WORLD by the tail! Hope it tats well for me, cause I'll look pretty silly just sitting there holding it with a big, goofy grin on my face!
Anyway, Handy Hands threw in a sample of Lizbeth #40 in Grape Pizzaz with my order - nice! Then, in the catalog, I saw the pattern for this heart - very nice!! It is called Clover Leaf Heart and is by Mrs. J.M. Blackman from Modern Priscilla 1917. It was an easy, fun heart to tat - nicest part of all!!!
Now, my only remaining question is - IF my heart is INDEED free, will it STILL be free if I order the mini hook set and celtic shuttle I ran across while WORKING... on my FREE heart?
