I'm a Horrible Blogger...

What happened to me getting into a routine with this?  Anywho, just a quick post because I'm kind of in love with my latest project...

It's a bad scan and I wasn't able to get a good photo with my phone, but I still really like it!  :-) 

The pattern: Margaret's Designer Cards Patterns -- Tatted Dreamcatchers
The thread: Lizbeth size 20, 662 and 693

This is my second attempt --the first was a disaster!  This was made for my wonderful cousin, Sue!  I hope she likes it as much in person as she did when she saw the picture!  :-)

I also have a question: Anyone have any suggestions or tips about "blinging" shuttles...  Even right down to what do you use...  I bought some super-cheap shuttles online and I want to try decorating them when they arrive, but I'm scared that I'll just mess them up and end up in tears over ruining a shuttle...  :-(

Well, love and happy tatting to all!  

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY, in case I don't post tomorrow...

Sometimes tatting just has to come before blogging, so I guess we'll just have to enjoy reading what you write when you get around to writing!

There's a link at the top of my blog page called, Blinging My Way. I based my instructions on what I learned from reading Decoromana's blog. I've used Clover, Starlit, and SewMate shuttles. I've used napkins, fabric, and scrapbook paper. I use ModPodge matte finish. I've tried the glossy, but didn't like the way it worked. I'd like to try the ModPodge glitter, but I haven't seen it around here. I use glitter nail polish between the first and second coats of ModPodge for extra pizzazz. A tip I picked up from Marty is to use curved nail scissors to trim close to the shuttle. I wipe off the extra Mod Podge from the edge of my shuttle. It's needed all the way to the edge to seal.

Please post pictures!
