Here is the second version of the Hippo. His name is "Happy" and he is the perfect companion for "Flora." Because of the background, he appears to be a cream color but the thread is camel-colored Cebelia 30.
I am a transplanted Texan from the Llano Estacado region. Now more than 25 years later, I am still trying not to suffer from bouts of claustrophia (TREES) and light-drepivation depession. I started tatting with my Great, Great Aunt's shuttle (Detach-A-Spool) and a Coats & Clark Learn to ... pamphlet sometime around 1970. I regularly attend meetings of the Palmetto Tatters Guild near Columbia, SC ... I am a Charter member of the group and am privileged to be the Charter President. I have also served the group as Treasurer, Program Chair and Vice President. I also help as needed for PTG's Annual TatDays Events.
