Checking the Mail!

Checking the mail was so much fun today!! I received a tatting exchange package in the mail from Dyan Jenkins in Ohio!

Look at all the goodies she sent to me!

If you're a tatter (needle or shuttle) and you've never participated in an exchange, I highly recommend it! It's a great way to share supplies and get some new goodies to tat with! For instance, in this exchange Dyan sent me some lovely silk thread and some finer weights of thread that I've never used before! I am already contemplating what to make with it!  The shuttles she sent are fabulous -- and I didn't have either of them! So nice to have new toys to play with!

You get to send out a surprise to someone else too, and for me that's really fun! I'm currently in stealth mode --- trying to scope out my exchange partner's facebook page and blog to determine what I can send that my partner will love! Generally there's a deadline for your package to go into the mail and it's really fun to see what other people send/get.

They do these once or twice a year, and if you belong to an online guild or a facebook group that tats, it's easy to sign up! Give it a try --- it's not expensive and it's really fun!

  1. You are very welcome! I'm glad you like it! And you displayed it beautifully! I love these exchanges, too! Oh, btw, the thread on the white thread bobbin is white inside, but turns yellow in the sun! I forgot to put that in the letter! Enjoy and happy tatting! Dyan
