What a week this has been. Here’s the top news headlines:

WINNER!

For the first time ever I entered City Crafter Challenge Blog’s weekly challenge with a tatted butterfly pendant, and won! Woohoo! I’ve never won a challenge or giveaway on a blog before, and it was very exciting. I was especially surprised as there were so many beautiful entries. They gave me a $10 gift certificate to Pixie Dust Paperie and this badge:

THANK YOU FOR THE WORK…I MEAN FEEDBACK!

Thank you to all who commented or emailed me with suggestions on what to teach new tatters. I now have a two page long (single spaced) list of topics to cover. It will take a while to get through everything, especially if you keep giving me work…I mean suggestions, so please be patient.

I will try to post everything in a logical order so that each skill builds on the next. Keep checking back for more tutorials, tips, treasures and tales of tatting triumphs!

All kidding aside, I love this kind of work. It feels like playing, I am having so much fun! (Is it bad that I’m fantasizing about quitting my day job to blog about tatting full time? If only I could get paid for this…dang mortgage.)

THE NEXT GIVEAWAY PRIZE IS HERE!

Squeee! September’s giveaway prize arrived in today’s mail, and I am so excited to play with it! I’ve admired this for a long time and am so happy the sponsor agreed to send me one to review and one to giveaway.

Yes, I’m being super secretive. Way to build up the suspense, right? Anyway, I’ll be announcing the giveaway in a few days, and give you a chance to get your own hands on this little treasure. I love it already and am sure you will too!
