Jon graciously sent me a package of goodies for a prize. Just look:
Best of all is a copy of Jon's book, "Elegant Tatting Gems." This is a very nice looking book, with 18 snowflake designs. I think many of them could be joined together to make mats or doilies. Each pattern has both text and diagram instructions, with a clear photograph. I am looking forward to trying these patterns. (You can order Jon's books from her directly through her blog, or from Handy Hands, Tatting Corner, or Roseground.)
Also included were a tiny motif in a glass frame, a calendar with quilling artwork, some thread winders, some little cords for attaching charms. Some findings remind me of dangley earrings - I'll be adding some tatting and beads to those eventually. A thread conditioner looks just like the beeswax my mother used to have.
Thank you for everything, Jon!
