Finally I've caught up with myself LOL

As the heading says.... finally I've caught up. I had 4 Secret Santa's to do (my own fault for thinking I could get 3 done for the intatters exchange and 1 for the tattinggoddess exchange). I LOVE doing them but always worry - have I put enough in?, or too much? I don't want the recipient to feel either slighted or guilty about what they sent to their own partner. I'll post the pattern links and photos once I know the recipients have got them.

Now onto the AMAZING giveaway present I got from Wanda. I truly was lost for words as just one of the items would have been more than enough. As Wanda has shown in her blog here. - she sent me the most stunning doily done in Lizbeth Falling Leaves. It is based on her Arches over Arches doily that she blogged about here.

There was also a ball of Lizbeth Falling Leaves thread and a shuttle.

A great mug and a box of tea for Tatting Tea Tuesdays - only going to be used for extra special occasions as it is far to nice to risk for everyday use.

Three (yes - 3!!!!) books - two tatting ones and a lovely little photo book all about Kansas. The tatting ones were Martha Ess' Holidays on the Block and Just Tat by Michelle Goldsborough - neither of which do I own so I've been spoilt rotten.

And a bag of Hershey's choccies- yummy!

I really can't say a big enough THANK YOU to Wanda

Enough for now - take care

You are very welcome! I'm glad you didn't already have the books so you have new patterns to check out. I hope you can join me on Tuesday for tea. They're forecasting snow for here, so I'll be trying to stay warm with a hot cup of tea and hopefully a little bit of tatting.

What a lucky girl and amongst all that one of my favourite books - Critters on the Block.

WOW, Trayna! Wanda really spoiled you! I have to say, though, you deserve some spoiling! I thought you were so generous to give your tatting to so many people! What a sweetheart you are. Isn't it wonderful how kindhearted and loving our tatting friends are online! It really has enriched my life to be involved with everyone here on the internet that does tatting! What a joy! It's also so nice to see posts like this. Thanks and enjoy your new toys! I look forward to seeing what you do with them!

Thank you kind people for all your comments - but mainly THANKS again to Wanda. I really appreciate all that everybody says - I know I don't comment very often but I love getting your feedback. I really am a VERY lucky girl.
