Thank you to everyone who follows the blog and encourages me in my creative endeavors. The kind words you bestow upon me truly make my days! I dearly love tatting and hope to instill in others the wonders & joys of needle & thread (or shuttle/hook & thread). It has been an interesting experience, this blogging thing. I quite enjoy it!
Special thank yous go to Barbara Gordon, Nancy Dugas Gilmore, Jean Krieger, and others who have encouraged me to blog and share more of my work. I always knew there were lots of wonderful folks in our tatting community, but I never imagined the amount of kindness and encouragement that has been lavished upon me as I embarked upon this latest journey.
As you may know, I am in the process of slowly cleaning out my in-house atelier. That is one of the reasons I have hosted so many giveaways. Jim (my husband) says I must get rid of some "stuff" so there is room for the new additions to my working spaces. After I get the in-house atelier renovated, Jim & I are going to build a "tatting shanty" in the Piney Woods. The building process will be chronicled on the blog and I am sure I will be asking for ideas and suggestions for many things concerning the shanty. Please feel free to comment and contact me with your input.
Not much tatting has gone on in the Piney Woods today as I have been washing our sleeping bags and other stuff that is needed for an upcoming family adventure. Next week will bring more tatting goodies and perhaps a little "something" for the New Year. Have a marvelous weekend doing whatever it is that makes your soul sing! Until next week~
