He knows my name!

My life verse: "I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel." (Isaiah 45:3). For me, "the treasures of darkness" has been the medically-treated depression that I have suffered off and on with for years. More than anything else in my life, I think this has made me realize how much my Savior loves me and has deepened my relationship with God. The "hidden riches of secret places" are my wonderful family and this fabulous craft--tatting! I thank God for both!
I think it is awesome that God knows my name! Did you know that He knows yours?

Christmas Exchange-Sue Anna Scribner's

I entered into a Christmas exchange through a facebook tatting group.  This is only the second time I've done an exchange of any kind.  I'm afraid from what the pictures of what I've seen, and from what I received that I "shortchanged" the person whose name I received.  I am ecstatic with the contents of my little postal box.

When I first opened my package....glitter went everywhere from a green and red polka dotted gift bag, which is what I opened first--out slid shuttles.  There were all kinds of shuttles, brand new Aerlit shuttles in three colors--with extra bobbins (I haven't had a chance to try them yet), a decorated clover shuttle, and a pop-a-bobbin shuttle! (something I'd only dreamed of owning!).  I could have stopped right there, but there was more!

There were 4 e-zbobs of size 3 lizbeth thread  and 3 packages of hand-dyed thread.  Also tucked away inside was a package of jewelry findings.  And then the personal touches...tatted earrings, tatted snowflakes (and the pattern), a bobbin lace bookworm bookmark, delicious handmade lipbalm and a personal letter.  At the very bottom of the box was a Nina Libin kit to make more jewelry.

Thank you Sue Anna Scribner for being a wonderful, generous person and making my tatting Christmas so merry this year!
