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.

Playing with Dyes


Was able to get out my dyes this past week.  Decided to play and make color blocks.  Using Turquoise, Grape and Yellow, this is what was done.  Was looking for a specific color of blue/purple.  Think I have found it.  Pretty colors for solids or variegated thread.  More color blocks are on the way.  Interesting how just a tweak in one color can change the outcome.
