I must eat shuttles in my sleep because I can never find any empty shuttles but I keep buying them. I'm damn sure that there are 30 shuttles either somewhere in my house or my intestines! So clover shuttles are on the list.
There's always a few goodies to be found in the grab bag and I'm looking forward to seeing what the Hector crew have up their sleeves. We got surgical clamps last year in the grab bag. It was something I had never used before and it took me awhile to start but once I did I loved it. Its handy when the ball thread is running out to hold the thread tight. Its definitely a tool that I'm happy to have in my tatting kit.
Last year I made the mistake of driving down early Saturday morning. That meant I was up at 4 am. I'm definitely not an early morning person so by the time I arrived I was ready for a nap. Sue Hanson showed me a quicker method of pearl tatting and I thought I understood but now I don't...too tired to even realise what she was showing me. No more early morning drives. This year I'm leaving Friday morning so I can take my time, make a few stops and arrive in plenty of time.
If you are coming, I'm the wide awake and alert red head (other than Karey, she has red hair too), please come and say Hi!
