It's been a really busy year. Just returned from our monthly Guild meeting in the Columbia, SC area. Lots of cars on the road with flags for the Clemson Tigers (played and beat Auburn) and the USC Gamecocks (played and beat Navy). Lots of folks getting their tailgating needs as well.
Last weekend, we were in Raleigh, NC for DS#1's wedding. DS#2 was the Best Man; he gave a heart-felt speech about the relationship between Lee and LaWanda. LaWanda is a beautiful bride ... I'll have to get some pictures of the edging she wanted me to add to her wedding gown.
Thursday I leave for PTG's 9th Annual Tat Days again this year at Toccoa, GA ... a beautiful venue with great teachers, wonderful food and many tatting friends. DH will be joining me hopefully sometime Friday. He's having to make an emergency meeting in TX because of his j-o-b. That 'thing' always seems to interfere with his vacation plans. He spent half his "vacation" in Montana last June working.
DS#2 graduated from MMI in Orlando FL in August and has moved back home along with the dog he rescued. Chris is a certified motorcycle mechanic in Kawasaki, Suzuki and BMW! In fact, he was the only 'wrench' in BMW for that class. Looking for a position but most of the shops around here are gearing down for the non-riding months. Funny ... DH doesn't park his KLR650 during the winter but he sure gets cold some days!!
More later and hopefully I won't wait so long to post. BTW, Friday, September 23, 2011, Palmetto Tatters Guild on Facebook, 6 to 6:30 EST (USA East Coast). Pattern at 2011 Tat Off Pattern. Comment or Chat with us on Facebook. Let us know your location by country. How far can we reach? We're hoping, with the aid of all the Tatters around the world to set a record for the most tatters SIMULTANEOUSLY tatting the same pattern. We've filled out all the paperwork and have a journalist who is willing to certify to the Guiness people. In the end, it will be up to the Guinness folks to accept our numbers. We're also planning a live broadcast at Streaming PTG Link. Join us if you can and we'll show the world that "TATTING IS NOT A LOST ART."
