Sunny and cold!

The Tollway Tatters managed to get together today, despite the bitter cold.

This is a really bad picture of daughter Alison, but it's the only one I took of her. She brought her knitting with her, and I am now the proud owner of a new dishcloth!

There were lots of projects going on. I started another Spinning Wheel glass mat today. This one is in size 20 Lizbeth, Falling Leaves, #100.

Marilee brought along lots of samples for upcoming classes she'll be teaching.

Marilee spent most of her time test-tatting a new patter for a class she'll be teaching this summer.

Sue Anna was test-tatting the same pattern for Marilee.

It was kind of fun to listen to the two of them talk about how to make the pattern read better.

Barbara was busy tatting a snowflake.

She's such a talented lady, and she's so much fun to talk to!

Marilee brought along some of her hand-dyed threads. There's nothing like shopping for beautiful HDT in person!

My main achievement today was finishing my Springtime Spinning Wheel glass mat. There was enough thread left on one shuttle to tat a little bookmark. The pattern is Leaf Braid from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior.

It was a very productive day!


  1. Tatting, knitting and eating Jelly Beans?!!! I saw them!!! Everyone looks cold but your Springtime Doily gives a hint of Summer.
    Oh those HDT are fantastic, what a treat to see them all together. So pleased you had a chance to meet.

  2. I'm glad you were able to hold your meeting in spite of the cold. Wonderful to be able to meet up with tatters (and knitters!) in person.

  3. Looks like so much fun and lots of colors to brighten us such a dreary day!!! :)

  4. love all the good pictures and nice to see every one that I hear about!

  5. Looks like another fun day. It's great that the weather didn't keep you all from getting together.

  6. You guys are lucky! Looks like fun.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
