Hello, dear readers :)
I'm in seventh heaven!
In 2012, I found this book at hhtatting.com. I was thrilled.
Jan Stawasz did beautiful tatting.
This was his second book. Then I learned there was a first book as well. Hmmmm
I looked all over to try to find his first book, but to no avail. It was out of print. I managed to get his email address. So I asked him if he was going to have a second publication of his first book. He told me to get on his list. Never heard a word.
So, I waited and waited, again scouring the internet to try to find the book. Then alas, I had read that he past away in 2013.
How sad :(
I thought, that was it, forget the book.
Fast forward to today. I happened to get a notice of new items at the Handy Hands Tatting site and what do you think!
His first book was there!
I have no idea how many tatters out there will pounce on his book.
I'm happy to say that I did not receive a back order notice.
I'm sure it will be a BIG seller for all tatting fans.
Doin' the happy dance.
I can't wait to see some more of his beautiful work.
