One, two.... - nuntium centesimum sexagesimum septuagesimum

One of my best friends had her birthday on Saturday.  When I asked her what she'd like for her birthday (she's not the kind to spoil herself), she said, "Well, I've always loved your tatting.".  I was SO surprised. I don't know why but most of the time I don't think of my friends and tatting.  No good reason, I suppose it just seems so ordinary to me.

So I puzzled and thought and thought and puzzled.  She's not really a doily girl and she has a kindle.  So, what to do?  We got together as TwinCities Tatters last weekend and Happy Bluebird brought a book to lend to me.  It's New Tatting by Tomoko Morimoto and I found the loveliest coasters inside.  PERFECT!  I've been working all week but school is pretty hectic right now so have only managed two.  More to come though.

Then my elder daughter, the one who tats noticed that I did the two centers differently!
