never heard of it...
We had a few hours of it, at the end of which
the kids were DELIGHTED
to find themselves with a free day,
but the little ones were DISAPPOINTED
to learn that there would be no snow play.
Today the ice remains,
as do bitter cold temperatures,
"ordered" rolling blackouts
have been added to the mix (for fun).
Still, watching the news, I know
WE ARE LUCKY.
But I must say as
(in a "when will this go away" kind of way)
as the weather has been,
I have been
FAR MORE EXCITED
about emails from tatters in my inbox...
In the last 48 hours, there has been a
regarding my Tatting Press Pattern!
and it WARMS MY HEART because
I posted it hoping to contribute
to the tatting community
which has been so kind to me.
First came an email from
AUBREY at SWEET MAGNOLIA TREE
saying she had made her tatting press
to the LOVELY blog
she has begun with her mom and sister.
Check out her cheery, Country French press!
She even posted WIP pictures of the press being made!
Next came an email from
MARIA at KNACKFUL KNITTER
to say she had also finished her press!!!
With her permission, here is a picture,
ISN'T IT JUST BEAUTIFUL!
Serene also comes to mind.
The perfect press for tackling clunies!
Check out Maria's blog
She knits WONDERFULLY
and has recently taken up tatting.
THEN I read Fox's post
which showed a
LOVELY motif she tatted
and a picture of it in progress
on her Tatting Press
at the coffee shop!
because Maria sent information about the press pattern
to ANOTHER tatter,
the pattern may show up in new places online
so, HOPEFULLY, more tatters
will be able to make one of their own!
