Tatting Pattern Source

I found the source of the flower bookmark pattern in my last post!

Rexie, (here’s her website) very graciously wrote me with answers to my questions.  The pattern is from the book Tatting Treats Three.  I found it online several places, but since I love Handy Hands Tatting, here is a link to it at that site.

I am ordering the book tonight.  It will be so good to be able to tat it legally!

If you missed my last post, here is the photo of the bookmark that Rexie tatted:

Thank you, Rexie!

 

P.S.:  I just ordered the book, along with some other stuff I HAD to have!  🙂

Tall Pines RV Park, Shreveport, LA

We got to Tall Pines RV Park in Shreveport around 4:00.  What a great place to overnight!  Clean, quiet, extremely friendly office staff, and a small, well-behaved office dog.   Well behaved dogs are welcome.  They even have a fenced area where dogs can run free off leash.  Badly behaved children are not welcome.  Ahhhh!!!  Overnight heaven!  🙂

Ron said the bathrooms are spotless and smell good.  I prefer to use the little bathroom in the Aliner.

The weather here is gorgeous.  I had all the camper’s windows open catching a balmy breeze earlier.  I plan to leave one open all night for the fresh air.

The park is packed, but it is blissfully quiet.

We paid $10 less than the going rate because our rig is so small.  What a nice surprise!

It feels good to settle in for the night.  Instead of going out to eat, I just opened cans of Chunky Clam Chowder and melted cheese on Rosemary Olive Triscuit crackers.  A nutritionist’s nightmare, probably, but easy, and it leaves us a little more money to spend on fun things with Mike and Gail!

I plan to tat this evening.  Have one more Christmas gift I’m trying to finish.  Then I’ll surf a little while, get a shower, and crawl between the sheets.

It was a strange discovery to realize that a nice RV park with parallel rows of rigs a few feet apart can be much quieter and more restful overnighting than a beautiful state park–with rude campers.

Beginner Shuttle Tatting Project

TA DAH!!!!!  My beginner shuttle tatted Christmas tree is completed.

I am so thrilled!  It’s far from perfect, but a few weeks ago I would have never dreamed that I would be able to shuttle tat at all!

I also got my order with Aero shuttles and bobbins and two SewMate shuttles to try today.  Needless to say, I am playing with my new toys tonight!

Oh, the red flowers are supposed to be poinsettias.  😀

Oops, I forgot to add that the Christmas tree pattern is a free pattern from be-stitched.com.
