Buffalo Gal Won't You Come Out Tonight

Buffalo Gal, 
won't you come out tonight
and TAT by the light of the moon!

is one of those tatters
who breaks into verse
or alliteration
from time to time,
and you LOVE it when she does!

I have never been to a
Tatters' Turnout,
but I SO hope
that there are songs,
tat songs,
and I FIRMLY believe
Isdihara and Fox
could be Tatland's answer
to Rogers and Hammerstein.

Thanks Isdihara,
sung to the tune of
Buffalo Gals,
which you penned.
I now have the dream
of tatting in the moonlight - 
doesn't that sound lovely?

This is as close
as I can come
to lassoing the moon
for you.
It's round
it glows at night
you clamp a book light on it.

And now for your humming enjoyment,
I offer you,

(to the tune of Camptown Ladies)
Tatland Tatters, sing this song,
Glad 'ta, meet 'cha!
Tat an edging five feet long,
Gonna tat all day.
Gonna tat doilies,
Gonna tat bookmarks,
Put my money on some HDT,
Lights my creative spark!

Press Pattern update - stalled on FINAL page due to too much computer-based homework for the kids and ROTTEN bug that the kids brought home, but so far have kept to themselves.

Tatting on Isdihara's drawstring bag done with embroidery thread (thanks for the idea, Gina!).  I'm counting it for the 25 Motif Challenge because I'm SO far behind, desperate, and have never been this adventurous with my tatting thread selection, so I feel it is something to celebrate!

If you like the bag, I'll be glad to post how to make one... some day... but it would be a while...'cause I am hitting my pattern wall.

Oh sweet mercy! I cant' seem to wipe the silly smile off my face after reading your latest post!

I am honored, I am humbled and I will be high-tailin' it to my mailbox ASAP so this "Buffalo Girl" can tat by the light of the moon!

Did you know that when Georgia Seitz lived in Alaska, she used to tat by the light of the midnight sun?

SO glad you like it Isdihara and VERY happy to have put a "silly" smile on your face!

While the idea of sunlight in the middle of the night DOES hold some appeal to me, darkness during the day...

It wasn't till I saw an email from Isdihara just now that I saw how I was honoured in this post, along with Isdihara of the verbal/musical, online-shinanigans fame.

Ah, I blush whilst I chuckle...

Thanks for that! I needed a giggle today!
♥ Fox : )

I love the tatting bag you've made - a perfect set for the lucky Isdihara!

Once again - wonderful work and a fun post to read :)

Thanks Cindy!
Baby Doll had been under the weather for a few days, so I had a lot sitting and thinking time, and I was able to iron out some details on a little drawstring bag I have had in mind. It was pretty easy and fun to make.
