...The "Upcoming" Palmetto Tatters Guild's 10th Annual Tat Days!

Are you ready yet?
My heart is!
Mentally, I think I am ready. 
Physically? Well...no I am not ready!
Palmetto Tatters Guild will be making a milestone in the year 2012! 
They... we will be celebrating our tenth ...yep, TENTH, annual Tat Days!

I am already making plans for that Tat Days!
My mind is spinning with ideas and plans!

I love meeting all the other tatters.
I love learning more with tatting.
I love the location, not because it is in "MY" town
But because it is beautiful there.

I sat at the dining tables mostly
That were located beside the picture windows.

The view is breath taking.
The lake, 
The trees hugging it,
The ripples in the water washing away the tension,

...Sunshine Can Travel!


Yesterday my mailbox looked very bright after the mailman delivered some mail 
and a package from Cottonelle.

 I got one of those cover for the "nekkid" toilet paper roll for free.
 I was going to post the site for  y'all to try get your own
but I saw that they ran out of that promotion. 


I got the one in the middle


But that was not the brightest thing from my mailbox.
This was! (below)


Isn't that the most wonderful Sunshine that you have ever seen... lately?
This was a surprise for me and I am truly blessed by this beautiful tatted cross!

Another sweet Tatter on this Earth!
If you know a gal named Lily
and has a blog called The Eye Candy for Crafters.
She is the one!!!! What a sweet surprise with a lovely sweet note!

Lily, Thank you! 
You have no idea that my world is upside and this lovely gift
is perfect timing with a reminder that all will BE okay!
(Because HE is in complete control)

...Shuttles Flying Around Here!

I have been having so much fun lately with dressing up the poor nekkid tatting shuttles!
(For the story about "ONS", the once nekkid shuttles click here )

I dressed up so many of them... 17 of them in fact!
I try real hard to do my part in this world, dressing up the nekkids!

They are fashionable in many colors!



Some even make a statement!


Some even go wild!
(this one below has been sold)

Some like to be subtle! 

...sold

Some are fruity!


And these are just few of the examples of the latest fashion in the world of  "ONS"!
All of these and other ONS can be found at my Etsy Shop!



I have also been busy with tatting! I been tatting up butterflies and they are taking over!
But a gal gotta pay up her dues! My dues for the tatting guild that I belong to!


The Palmetto Tatters Guild use these "dues" for sharing with the public at the South Carolina State Fair while they demonstrate tatting. I am so excited that PTG's tat days are coming up soon! I am going! I miss my new friends from last year and it will be wonderful to catch up with them again. In case you might know, we have men that also attend to the Tat Days. I know one guy by the name of John who is amazing (to me) in his tatting work! I gained a number of new sisters through tat days and they have become dear to me. We all have our own style of tatting and all are beautiful! I have been tatting non stop since a year ago. I am thrilled with my own ability and see how far I have gone. Now, I am personalizing my own style. I am a BIG fan of the "period" tattings which is one shuttle only, rings only....no chain work! I love it!!!

Well, I best get back to the butterflies... there is never too many!
