Today is going to be 'interesting'!! On Friday I had a letter from Parcel Force telling me that they had a package to deliver to me BUT that I'd got to pay £18.00 (nearly $29.00) customs and excise duty (plus handling charge) before I could have it. I was held to ransom over this as I think it might be the new Aerlit shuttles from Barb. Having 'spoken' to Barb I'm now not sure as the value of the shuttles certainly wouldn't merit a charge like THAT!!!! Of course I paid it - curiosity got the better of me!! I'll tell you more tomorrow but for now I have a new pattern for you.
This could be a useful little doodle, I think!!! I suppose you could add it to Christmas cards etc.
It came about during a conversation when Sally and I were at Joanie's. She asked if I could possibly do a reindeer face and showed me a picture of a tatted reindeer head. I've no idea how it was made or who by so when I got home I had to start completely from scratch. Well I normally start from scratch anyway so that I don't meet any copyright issues.
Scratch? No I haven't got fleas!!!!!
Anyway, here is a link to it. Joanie test tatted it for me but the nose has undergone a small change since then (sorry, Joanie). She also suggested (and tried) doing it using the double double stitch too and it works well made like that. The first picture is the head worked normally and the second using the double double. Have fun with it - I'd love to see if it really does work on cards etc!!!!
