We had a beautiful day for our Tollway Tatters meeting! Tatters came from far and wide, some die-hards, some newbies... we had so much fun!
My daughter Alison worked on her first doodad snowflake.
Cheryl is a newbie... she's only been tatting six weeks, and her work is beautiful! She worked on the Amusement Doily in size 10. I really find it hard to believe that she's been tatting for such a short time!
Cheryl's mentor is Sue aka God's Kid. Sue brought along some beautiful examples of her tatting, including her doodad snowflakes! These two ladies drove in from Michigan... made me feel like a rock star! ;-)
Barbara, always so cheerful and full of wonderful stories, makes all of us feel so good about what we're working on. She's quite a talented lady. Her tatting is lovely, and she also makes beautiful bobbin lace! She wasn't able to join us last time. I sure am glad she was able to make it today!
Granddaughter Eva is the youngest in our group. She makes beautiful chains, and she thinks she might be ready to learn how to make rings... makes a grandma proud!
Carol is amazing! She tats, she blogs, she embroiders... she inspires us to try new things. Today she brought along matchbook style needle holders for us to decorate. She's such a generous lady!
The oh-so-talented Marilee brought along her latest pendants for us to admire. She also brought along some of her gorgeous HDT. Of course I had to buy some! ;-)
Marilee showed us some of her goodies from Palmetto Tat Days. Boy, I sure wish I could have gone!
The ever-vivacious Sue Anna had us all enthralled! I think she brought along everything she had from Palmetto Tat Days, plus she showed us tons of pictures and videos. She had shuttles, threads, patterns, lessons... if it was at Tat Days, Sue Anna had it! I am going to attend Palmetto Tat Days, probably when I retire in four years. I sure hope Sue Anna will go with me!
Denise worked on an angel for her Doodad Double Dare, and it is adorable! She wants to tweak it some, and then she's going to try writing up the pattern. Who knows... maybe she'll share it with us!
Yes, I managed to do some tatting also. I worked on a Spinning Wheel glass mat in Navy Greens from Jess. I also tatted a doodad snowflake in 4-Eva, another of Jess's color ways, but I forgot to take a picture of it before giving it to my granddaughter. Oops!
I am one proud mama... this is daughter Alison's first doodad snowflake!
Who knows, maybe we'll be able to meet some more tatters at our next meeting. I sure hope so!
