Fingerlakes part 2

Part 2

After the classes were over, we had a spaghetti dinner. Shawn was getting tired, so he went to the condo and I hung out. We had an auction and I won a basket with a bunch of tatting thread and tatting goodies in it.

I got to spend some time with Sharon Townsend. Oh she is such a sweet lady. I've known her online for 15 years and finally got to meet her in person. She and I got to chat for a while. She had the most amazing shawl on. Well, I found out that it is really supposed to be a tablecloth. Gosh, you have to love tatters. We will think of anything. And she made a really cute hat.

On Sunday morning I took a class making a Bluebird of Happiness. I had a hard time getting the bird started, but I did finish it. I will redo it because I messed up the changing of threads and twisted the wrong way.
We had lunch of sandwiches and snacks. Did the rest of our shopping and then I had the best class of all.
I took a class with RUTH PERRY. OMG, she is one of my tatting heros. You would think that someone with her credentials that she would be snobby or stuck up. She is the most down to earth person you will meet. She's so nice. We did a miniture doily and it is an amazing pattern. I only got part of it done because I was yapping the whole time. I'll post pix of that when I'm done with it.
So now Fingerlakes is over for 2014. I have Palmetto Tat Days to look forward to, if I can go and then Fingerlakes 2015.
Vacation starts now. So I'll see ya next week.

  2. We did. It was so much fun. I wish I was still on vacation
