A short post here. First of all here is a picture of Iris's TIAS doily. This is the second one I made. Same colors and everything. I tell you I so hate it when I finish something and I see mistakes after I have cut the threads and there isn't anything I can do about it. ....I bet you all have been there and done it...anyhow...here is a picture of the second one I made without the mistakes. I love the color play in this. Threads info and link to Iris's blog on the post before this one.
I also got an email from Marion Amber from the tatting list. She is from eastern Ma. Come to find out she was at Herkimer Diamone Mine the same day I was. I emailed her back and told her I remembered an older woman with a wheel chair with a big dog in the quarry and she told me it was her cousin. If she had taken a good look at my shirt she might have guess I was a tatter too and who knows...a conversation could have started on tatting. She had a three year old with her and I understand perfectly that she had her mind on him. Who knows...we might meet up again next year...planned this time. What a small world huh?
