A big envelope came in the mail today! I was a bit suprised because I hadn't ordered anything so I wasn't expecting anything! Imagine my surprise when I opened up the envelope to find a gift from Heather who is also known as The Tarnished Tatter!
You see, Heather sent me her new book called "Tatted Earrings and Things". She had asked me some time ago to test tat for her. Somehow I never had time, never had time, and then again...I never had time! She probably thinks I'm the worst test tatter ever, sorry Heather! She had said she would send a book to her test tatters so I completely expected to get nada, nothing, zip, zilcho...
but no!!! Heather kindly and generously not only sent me her new book, she sent me some of her lovely pink HDT called "Pink 4 Link" in size 20!
Let me show you!
Here is the cover page with the
HDT peeking in from the side of the photo.
(sheepish grin...the pink hummingbird is a hint)
I "test tatted" her pattern!
(Yes, I know, this usually happens before the book comes out)
I will count this as a motif for my 2nd round of
The 25 Motif Challenge!
Motif #16 Hummingbird Pendant
size 20 HDT "Pink 4 Link"
What do you think?
I'd love to hear from my bloggy friends so be sure to say hello! Have you had a pleasant surprise lately?
