Today was such fun! Twin Cities Tatters met today. We aren't a very large group but it's so exciting to meet with other tatters. We showed each other what we've been doing and talked, laughed and drank coffee. We even had someone stop by to ask what we were doing- we gave her a card and told her to join us next time and we'll teach her.
I've been working on eggs like you see from this beautiful blog: http://renulek.blogspot.com/. She most generously shares her patterns but since I don't know the size of her eggs, I start with hers and then have to modify somewhat. I don't design at all so this is a slow process. I have three and a half done and my goal is 5 by Friday! I just finished number 4 tonight. It's Lizbeth size 20. (My daughter graciously painted the wooden eggs for me).
When I'm out and about, I like to have a little tatting project and now that the carnation is done, I've got an idea bubbling around for something new. Here's a little piece of the idea.
Cindy (http://ahappybluebird.blogspot.com/) gave me some wonderful DMC perle cotton and since I wanted a very soft effect, I thought I'd give it a try. The pattern is from Jeanne Lugert's rose earring pattern http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2002/jlrose/jlrose.html but I only did the first 20 rings because 25 was just too bulky for my purposes.
Here's a Latin word for you today: salve! = Hello!
