Here is a photo of the birdie that Katie Tatted! I got to stay with her after Palmetto for a few days, and we had such a good time tatting and watching kids, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Everyone learned cool stuff in my class and I had a great time too. This is something I taught at Shuttlebirds, and in N.C. this year.

No time to tat just now, unpacking stuff from boxes. I found tatting books in a box today.

Oh what fun we all had in the Carolinas!!

Palmetto was great - as always! I for one like the new location. The classes are easy to get to for everyone and that's important.

After Palmetto I spent a few days with Katie V. and enjoyed resting and watching the butterflies and humming birds play outside, and her two grandkids. It's so fun spending time with Katie's grandchildren who at 2 & 3 speak and understand three languages! They are SO cute! and SO smart too. Who ever heard of a two year old speaking in paragraphs?

Then on to Jane Armstrong's to teach flowers and butterflies to a wonderful class of tatters. It always amazes me how much differently we have all learned tatting, but even tho some didn't tat the same way I learned to do, we got through the lessons and everyone had fun and learned something new. Some learned or got to practice finger tatting, some learned the hanging cluny, some learned to put a bead in the center of a double core reverse ring BDCRR I think is what Georgia called it.

Everyone tatted flowers and butterflies, Celtic butterflies too. The patterns will be available later on this fall.

I learned that the mountains are beautiful, and that I have some new best friends in NC. If you ever get a chance to go to a workshop at Jane Armstrong's house, you'll love it! The food was yummy, & the house is full of beautiful lace, and beautiful people. The Southern Seasons restaurant is really something unusual, a store and a restaurant. Such fun times.

I did have to put down a Celtic mutiny, but that wasn't serious.

I'm in TN tonight, then off to Ohio tomorrow. I should be back to doing the Calendar next week after I unpack some of the stuff in boxes this weekend.

Big Hugs to all!

I've been tatting butterflies to take with me to Palmetto, and then to N.C. where I am teaching the following weekend. But I think these will end up staying back with Palmetto Tatters for the S.C. fair. I hope to get all the spaces filled in over the next few days.

Got my computer hooked up here, and I'm doing my laundry today, then packing. I still have three boxes to go through today and a couple bags of clothes to put away. Tomorrow I'm headed South for a Palmetto Tatting vacation!!! I'll take my laptop and should be able to check email every day.

Greetings from Miamisburg, Ohio!!! I just got my laptop turned on and thought I'd post something to this blog. I'll be heading South on Thursday to go to Palmetto then on to teach in N. C. the following week.

We still have a little bit left to move from TN, so I'll be there later on in Sept. Sorting.

There is an awesome church in Donnelson, TN called the River of Life Church of God where we made many friends. We plan to keep in touch, and the services are recorded and can be enjoyed on their website:

Looking forward to seeing lots of friends in a few days!
