Tat Days Again?

Wow, I can't believe it's been almost a year since the last one.
I'm amazed at how much work the guild does in one year to accomplish this weekend.
Thank all of the ladies and gentlemen who donate their time and effort to provide this excellent opportunity to preserve and promote the craft of tatting.
I eagerly await seeing old friends and making new ones.
Toccoa here we come.
(keep an eye on your chocolate and ice cream)

No Tatting in this Book

This cute little book is a bit of a disappointment to me. Despite the title Tatting Accessories and what appears to be tatting on the cover, there is no tatting in this book. All the articles in the book were constructed of micro macrame. Clever but no tatting. 
Drats tricked again.

In Memory Of The Tatting Goddess.

I'm thinking of Gina, and how amazing it is that I can miss a person I only met twice in my life.
I feel it's a testament to her spirit that she left such an impression on me.
Please enjoy this picture of a gift she sent to me. The piece is beautifully crafted and lovingly made.
Rest in Peace Gina.
I'm praying for that same peace for her family and friends.

No sleep tonight!

Sort of like Christmas Eve. I'm going to lay down but I know I won't sleep. I'll be on a plane to South Carolina in the a.m. and then drive to Toccoa for Tat Days. So excited YaY.

I know about a few of the archives, Gutenberg,University of Arizona, the link thru Georgia Seitz.
I did not know about the Library of Congress. There are a small group of tatting books there and some I have not seen before. Check it out:
Once you click on your choice you can choose to read the book online,good for deciding whether it's worthwhile saving or if you already have it. Or you can save it to pdf.
