My oldest son married my wonderful daughter-in-love nine years ago! Crystal is amazing in so many ways! She has single parented during two deployments. She is one of those people who always seem to know the "right thing to say." She loves unconditionally and without judgement. She is goal oriented--demonstrated by her cooking (When we met her when she was in high school "she couldn't boil water.") and in the decoration of their home. One of the things that just astounds me is that she is a super-fantastic mother. I am so grateful that she has chosen to stay home (for the present at least) and takes wonderful care of my three grandsons.
http://tatsaway.blogspot.com/2008/08/dimpled-chain-edging.html She developed the pattern as an all chains project, however, I enjoy doing dimpled rings, so I worked the pattern with rings. I also eliminated all the picots that were not joining picots. I left off the "dimple" on most of the connecting chains so that I could add the small heart beads. The dimple did come in useful in holding the three hearts.

I had some trouble with online ordering and the next morning emailed the company; Shelly responded so quickly and nicely and before I knew it, two Debbie A Comfi shuttles were on their way to my mailbox! I can't wait to try them out!
On Wednesday, I received my last order from Tatting Corner. :( It arrived damaged and damp. However the products inside were safe and dry due to their packaging. Everything was contained in plastic bags. I will miss Jennifer's smiling face at Palmettos and Finger Lakes. I so appreciate the help she has given me when I have contacted her. I certainly understand the need to spend time with growing children and aging parents. I will miss Jennifer and I wish her the best in her "new" life.
