It's not what it looks like

My first thought was 'this is a book of tatting'.  The doily on the cover is what caught my eye.

Nope.  It's a book on making felt dogs.

I didn't buy this book.  I didn't even think to check if the doily was credited to someone.  I was tickled that there was tatting on the cover, though!

I was at a Jo-Ann Fabric store looking through the books when I saw this.  I had just got the text with a 20% off everything coupon so was checking to see if there was anything I really, really needed there.  I did pick up another package of shuttles (who doesn't always need more shuttles?) and thought I'd check if they had any books on tatting.  I didn't notice any, just this one.  The dogs in it were very cute and I thought about buying it.

That's just what I need, another project.  I'm in the middle of about four projects right now and having trouble knowing which one to pick up at any given time. I'm very excited about all of them!  There just isn't enough time in a day to get done all that I want to.

That felted dog on the cover is really cute though....
