Joanne and her kids arrived around 1 p.m. yesterday. After putting all their things away and eating lunch, we spent the afternoon outside. The kids pulled out all their toys and played on the porch, ran through the sprinkler, and fed the chickens. It was a loud, hot, glorious afternoon!
As for tatting, I did almost finish an Ice Drop before everyone arrived. However, I made a big mistake. I forgot five double stitches before doing a lock join. Usually, I'm pretty good about picking out a lock join... not this time. After about 20 minutes of trying, I had such a mess, I just snipped it off and threw it out. Maybe I'll have time to try again today... maybe!
