Fund raisers, lace days, and babies

Lynda has been tatting a lot of crosses and earrings for a church fund raiser so she hasn't had a lot of time to work on her Chrismons. Shall we tell her that the 15 crosses she did could count toward her 25? Or do we make her keep on tatting. I vote for making her keep on tatting.

Mark is one of the teachers at the Circle City Lacemakers Fall Lace Retreat. He will be teaching the tatting class zigzag chain and SR ground making a flower spray motif inspired by Bruegge Bloemwerk. This is the same project he taught at the Hector Tat Day. Hopefully he'll post some pictures when the weekend fun is all over.

Jeanne has been a busy tatter. She has tatted an angel to go on the Fort Wayne Tatter's Guild wreath for the Botanical Gardens Christmas Wreath display / sale. They are doing 2 wreaths this year one will be tatted snowflakes and the other will be angels. She's also done a swan, another of Martha Ess' block tatting critters. In addition to these she has been doing some special tatting for a newcomer, expected in April. Grandma has tatted a lovely bookmark in pastel Flora 20 using Bina Madden's pattern and 6 wee angels so that Mom, Dad and the grandparents have something to treasure and remind them of the little one. What a delightful idea!
