Happy New Years

 Hope everyone is staying healthy and safe.  It sure has been a couple of trying years and this year is not starting any better.

Jane Eborall Will be hosting her TIAS (Tat It and See tat-along) again this year!  Yeah!!!!!  January 12 is the first clue. Click on her name for link.  

Been busy with life as usual lately.  Still tatting when I can.  Learning to use a Cricut.  What an amazing machine.  I am hoping to try and prioritize life so I may concentrate more on tatting.  Have a couple of patterns I would like to design as well as update the patterns in the pattern tab of this blog.

Tat Days 2021

 Another year has come and gone.  Palmetto Tat Days was held at a new location this year, Lake Junaluska, NC.  It is a nice setting.  Yes, as with any new location, there were some kinks, but for the most part, Tat Days went on as usual.

Georgia Seitz made it this year!  It was nice to see her feeling/looking  good and enjoying the weekend with everyone.

Thursday evening started with a resin class from Mike Lyon.  We made pendents using 2-part resin.  Not difficult at all.  Enjoyed the evening and all pendents looked nice.  I made Marie Smith's angel using 2-strands of embroidery floss.  

Friday I was in Bonnie Swank's Nina's Beanile Lace Grape Earrings class.  Need to put findings on and they will be complete.  

The Online Tatting class held a live YouTube interview with Georgia Seitz in the afternoon.  It was a great way to be asking questions one on one with her.  Glad to have so many join in the live stream.  If you were not able to make it or did not know about it, click on link and watch the interview.  Might be surprized at some of her answers.

Live auction was held in the evening.  There was plenty of laughs and entertainment for everyone.

Saturday was the Beaded Medallion in a Bangle by Melissa Deputy.  Nice and easy pattern.  Also had a class by Bonnie for Nina's Beanile Lace One Strip Bracelet.  It is almost complete.  It will match the earrings.

Banquet was held Saturday evening.  Rest of the evening was used to relax, catchup with tatting friends, decorating shuttles, and finishing projects.  

Lack of sleep also was part of the weekend.  However, I now have a year to recoup and get ready for 2022!

Monster Doily

 

Monster Doily is complete.  Did not do last row as I personally could not agree on final row color.  Several years in the making.  Glad this is now done.  

I can now concentrate on finishing the Tatters Across Time proficiency program.  About half way through Phase III.  This is another long term project I will be able to cross off the complete project list.

Lagniappe Continued

 

This is my home away from home project.  More than halfway complete.  It has been a somewhat slow project.

Also been working on the banquet favors for Palmetto Tat Days.  About 2/3rds complete with the tatting.  If I would keep my focus better, I would be further along.

TIAS 2021


 Jane Eborall has done it once again.  TIAS (Tat It and See) is now complete. I used hand dyed thread I had in my stash.  I can definitely see tatting this again.  It is not to late to start if you need a fun project to tat.  Once complete, submit your picture so others may see it.  There are tatters all over the world that join in the fun.
