July 2017 already?

I can not believe we are in July already!  No idea where the first 6 months went.

As for tatting, I have not had the chance to tat anything new but I'm trying to finish a motif so I could start something from my latest purchase!  A reprint of Dora Young's All New Knotless Tatting Designs.  I purchased this book directly from Heidi Nakayama in USA.  You can find out more information about Dora Young's reprinted book on Heidi's website.  I shared the postage cost with a local tatter with postage costing USD$14.47 for both books to Australia.  Our books took just under 2 weeks to get to Brisbane.  That's really fast postage!  The envelope was a bit battered but luckily both books were safe.

I haven't had the chance to look closely at the book but have glanced at all the patterns.  I can't pick a favourite! They are all lovely and I can not wait to free up some shuttles so I could start a pattern from the book :).

Hopefully I'll have something to show soon before the end of the year!  That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).
