Tatting Tea Tuesday March 9, 2010 part 2 of 2

I have a bit of an announcement to make. Pretty soon I shall have a booklet ready for purchasing, no its not the Tatted Ladies book YET.
Its called Afternoon Tatting
 I am really hoping this will be the first of many 'afternoon tatting' books
This book has 12 designs, fairly simple, only 1 of the 12 uses 2 shuttles, the rest are shuttle and ball. Each design uses 9 beads, dunno why 9 was the lucky number but it just was.

I still have 2 gals testing for me so once they are finished up I can get everything finalized and ready. I really need to thank JANE EBORALL she granted me special permission to use her adding a bead to picot technique to my book not just the link but the whole tutorial so THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH JANE!!! I also want to thank my testers, Aileen, Isdihara, Sunela, Leah, and Crazy Mom Tats...

Patterns are written as well as drawn out, and I have to send a thank you to Sherry (lady shuttle maker) for being so kind as to give me the drawing program in exchange for my books. Without that program I would still be cursing out my PSP7 program when it dosent agree with what I want it to do.

The cover of the book was approved  by my daughter I was messing around last week trying to figure out how to do it and she gave me a few ideas and I think the cover looks WONDERFUL!

I did end up tatting a little bit today but nothing worth showing, my mind was pre-occupied with other things and stuff going on. Right now I am not in the best of moods either. I could eat all the chocolate candies I made earlier but I wont.

Ok gonna nurse this headache and try not to cough because it makes my head feel worse.

I hope to have some tatting to show off tomorrow Maybe I will get my March Heart finished, awww heck I finished the center of it last night I must show you
