A lovely birthday gift ..... these two wonderful books I've been drooling over for months now. My aunt managed to get it ....I've no idea how...and she wouldn't tell me. Maybe she's afraid I wont spare her and drive her nuts to get me more stuff! They are Needle tatting books by Barbara Foster. And a set of tatting needles for threads and one for yarn. My first venture ever into needle tatting.
And this is the first medallion I made. My first project made of yarn. I used the local yarn for this which is pretty poor in quality. I use it for drafting or learning new stuff...that way I can save up my really good yarn for better projects.
