It promised to be 92 and humid so we loaded up water, umbrellas and our gear.
My daughter sold earrings like hot cakes and that was very fun. She was so excited and it was a thrill as a mom to watch her doing all the "business".
I put out the angel bookmarks, thinking if I sold any, I could make more for my thank yous. (Yes, I still haven't sent my thank yous to my students, pig that I am.)
I also put out some cards that I whipped up Thursday. I used to make these and sell them to my colleagues. I bet everyone who tats has done a few of these.
I sold a few sets and that was nice. But what was really fun was that I met a young woman who was very interested in learning to tat and she lives in my neighborhood. I'm going to try to teach her one evening when the weather changes (it will change, right?). Then hopefully we'll have another member of Twin Cities Tatters!
When I took the picture today I was horrified to see that the top card of the set got a sunburn! (It was really hot.)
|Can you see the sunburn on the pink one?|
Here's another Aunt Rose-E piece (she taught me to tat many years ago).
It's some kind of metallic thread, size 40, I would guess. One of my daughters spotted it and now it's disappeared into one of their rooms!
And when I was cleaning out the closet two weeks ago, I found this piece that I was working on 15+ years ago. My intent was to make placemats (ha!) but I hate hiding ends so much, this was as far as I got. I wonder if there's a split ring way to make the motifs.
|This plant was a cutting from one of my student's gardens!|
The Quatrain proceeds. I've finished three rows and 2 so I'm up to 23 motifs. I think I'll do a picture again in a week.
