I'm Still Here


















Just to show I am still here and tatting, here is my Lace Mat still in progress.

There has also been some gift tatting that I can't show yet.

The blue shuttle is one of Handy Hand's new Aerlit shuttles. This was just one of Barbara Foster's generous contributions to our Palmetto goodie bags. Those who know, say these shuttles compare with the original English Aeros. I know that it has been my main workhorse shuttle for 2 months, and it still has plenty of "click" left. I am really looking forward to these shuttles coming available in the shop, perhaps later this month.

Meanwhile, the weather has turned chilly, and I haven't finished knitting my scarf yet. Which in-progress project should I work on tomorrow?

  2. The tat-along doily is looking great. I like the unusual colours you've chosen. Looking forward to the complete doily, and this reminds me that I ought to get going with mine. LOL

  3. Oh! I love the colors you chosen!
    Very pretty.
    I tried the Aerlit, but I wasn't crazy about it. But, I'm not all together decided on how I feel about bobbin shuttles in general, so that may have something to do with my indifference to the Aerlit. :o)

  5. I love the colors you're using for the Lace Mat! I haven't moved past the first round... still tatting snowflakes! I'm really looking forward to the new Airlit shuttles, so I'm glad to read that they have plenty of click in them. ;-)

  6. It's really interesting seeing how your Lace Mat is developing.
    I wonder whether you will finish first? I am working on mine as I write...well not exactly as I type, lol.

  10. Really looking forward to the release of the Aerolit shuttles! I use only bobbin shuttles, and I like the idea of all those colors! I still have and use my original Made in England shuttles, so it will be easy for me to compare them. I appreciate the effort that has gone into replicating those shuttles!

  12. I too really like your colour choice. Slightly muted both, I love their vintage feel when combined.

  13. Wow, I love the color combination! And you do not seem to have had much,if any, trouble with those round 3 chains.

    Will you be adding the three-ring bits at the end or do you have an expansion planned for this beauty?
