Had to chuckle, chortle, guffaw. Pizzazz is the HDT that began my addiction and the color my daughter chose for the rosettes on her "Sheep" doily that I'm tatting for her! I'm using Fern and Vibrato also on the same piece.
I'm glad that magazine shows your work. I've never read a copy; but, it looks like a good mag.

I would love to win this too! What an exciting giveaway. I remember seeing those pensants on your blog, and thinking at the time how effective they were.
Surprisingly, our local Borders here in Brisbane stocks Belle Armoire - the only place I have seen it.
I am crossing all my fingers, in company with the rest of the tatting community.
Blogless, sadly...
