After running lots of errands, I returned home to a very full mailbox. Not only did my latest Valdani thread order arrive, so did some small Czech buttons. But, there was another goody in my mailbox- a lovely surprise from a tatting friend. Here is what was in the envelope:
Nicola tatted a lovely pair of earrings from a pattern called "Thara's Heart" (that can be found at the Bella Online site) in size 40 Lizbeth, color 671 "Christmas Red". Aren't they gorgeous!?!?! I will be wearing these on my Valentine's Day dinner date.
The little heart is a pattern by Rosemarie Peel that she tatted in vintage Star tatting thread, shade 164.
And the other goody I am drooling over is:
Nicola found this treasure at a yard sale this Summer. It has a copyright year of 1915 and is filled with fantastic crochet patterns. I will have many enjoyable hours of playing with the patterns and thumbing through it. Many, many thanks to Nicola for the fabulous goodies!
Dear readers, please do not forget to leave a comment on last Tuesday's "Be My Valentine" post and/or the Facebook posts about the event for your chance to win one of the 3 prizes. The winners will be notified via email tomorrow morning after I take the kid to school. Good luck!
I guess I'll save images of the new thread & buttons for tomorrow. Be sure to check tomorrow's post for gorgeous thread, buttons, and winner announcements! Until then~
