Thank you Sally

All the way from across the pond, and just in time to lift my spirits, is a lovely package from Sally from Tat's Heaven, a beautiful Rosewood post shuttle handmade by "I'm in the garage."
It goes so nicely with my Applewood pop-a-bobbin shuttle, that I decided to tat something using both shuttles.  I'll show you what it is when it's finished. : )  But Sally didn't send just a shuttle, I got all these other goodies, too.

The shuttle came wrapped in that adorable little burgandy bag with a beautiful heart motif on the outside. But that's not all:  I also got some lovely flowery coasters and the whole package smelled wonderful with the rose sachet.  Thank you Sally for a great giveaway!

For my Dad

I want to dedicate this post to my father, Charles Collins, who passed away on June 27 at the age of 87.

He was a wonderful man and a good father.  He will be dearly missed.  He was the first man I wanted to marry when I was 6 years old.

I will get back to posting about tatting soon.  I do have some things to show.
