(Anniversary by Mary Konior, from Tatting With Visual Patterns,
#5 for the 25 Motif Challenge)
So I was hanging out at the bar. It was a busy night and people were everywhere. I knew I was in for a wait just to be served, so I pulled up a stool and pulled out my tatting. I started a little edging I was previewing for a nighty for Baby Doll's baby doll. After working a few minutes I realized someone was watching me and then a voice spoke from somewhere behind me.
"Excuse me, is that tatting?"
"Yes it is!" I turned and replied to the nice, smiling, lady.
"My mother-in-law is crafty and she can tat. I can't tat, but I can crochet," she continued.
"That's funny because I can't CROCHET, but I can tat!" I laughed. I was already taking a liking to this person. We seemed to have a bit in common, what with an appreciation for fiber arts and both of us winding up in this particular bar on this particular night.
"I can't believe anyone who can do THAT, wouldn't be able to learn crochet!" It was her turn to laugh.
But that is where our brief, crafting encounter ended at the bar, because an Apple Genius came and snagged my new acquaintance away from me to discuss the repairs on her computer and then my name was called so I could talk to my own Genius about the state of my iMac's hard drive.
I hope her talk went better than mine...
