Amazing surprise


When Diane began her bobbin lace I offered to send her some pattern plastic, and she offered to send me some different threads, which was really kind. I didn't expect this incredibly generous parcel of goodies! but I am really pleased to receive them. There are three skeins of Yarnplayer's beautiful HDT, which is a nouveauté for me, and I am looking forward to trying them. There are two, yes two, new lacis shuttles and a whole ball of Lizbeth thread, plus whole balls of Coats and Clark's in my favourite size 80, plus a ball of DMC special dentelles in an Easter shade of yellow. The tatting book is by Myra Piper, and is full of pretty snowflake patterns. I count myself very lucky to have such a kind and generous friend! Big thank you, Diane.

How exciting! That Diane is a sweetie, isn't she? Those are some wonderful goodies to get anytime! Thanks for sharing! It always warms my heart to see how kind most tatters are to each other!

Happy Easter to you!
