When I last stayed at my daughters place I went to Crochet Australia with my granddaughter and bought some more Tatting stuff, yeah!!!!! I know it is addictive. Saw this book and just loved the patterns that were in it. I also had to get some more thread, and that is only a small amount of what I bought. And I also was able to get a shuttle winder they are great and makes winding easier, and lastly some more Tortoiseshell Shuttles I really love these as they are nice to work with.
