On my way to Finger Lakes Tatting Conference this past weekend, I came across this.

It tickled my funny bone, so on the way home I had to stop and take a picture of it to share with you. I'm sure it's probably a working machine, but at this point it looks like it's a stationary sign advertising the business.

More of Finger Lakes later, don't get to excited, I didn't get many, if any, good pictures but I'll see if there's enough there to put a post together.

Finger Lakes

It's for real, I'm going!!

Tomorrow is the big day. It's about 3.5 hours away according to Mapquest, so I'll leave home about 5 AM to get there in time for some chatting before the first class.

I wish all of my blogging buddies could be there, however I'm excited to get to spend time with those of you that are lucky and get to attend with me.

I've got a bit of nerves going on, I'm always a bit nervous about anything new, but I stand up in front of people and talk often, so I know I can do this. Besides the excitement out weighs the nervousness, right?!

Happy International Tatting Day

No it's not an April fool's day joke. It's real April 1st is International Tatting Day. It is a day of tatting, talking about tatting, and eating chocolate. I know, I know, it's like some one made a day especially for me.

In order to celebrate today I did alot of eating of chocolate, so I figured I'd spend this evening doing some tatting.

It's Jane's Flying Pig (that link will take you to her's on her blog page), but the pattern can be found here. Mine is made using size 20 Lizabeth pink and white thread. It is #6 of The 2012 UIU Project.

My friend Linda's very good friend, Jody, passed away recently. I'm not sure of the story but I know that Jody liked flying pigs, so when I saw Jane's pattern I had to make one for Linda.

Thanks for another fun pattern, Jane.

I hope everyone had a great ITD!
