The last Tatting Tea Tuesday of 2009.
A lacing day full of chat,
Yes, there was lots of that.
And of tea and of threads intertwined.
Let's turn back time briefly to a lovely afternoon spent in the company of a new tatting friend I will call Sw4nkyL4c3r. She does not have an online identity and gave me permission to make one up for her. Brave lass!
DH (Big Daddy) had the whole week off. He and the Sprout went out for the afternoon, leaving us girls to our gossip, tea and lace appreciation.
Sw4nkyL4c3r and I each picked a fine china cup and saucer from my china cabinet and settled in for a good lace-in while Lady Grey steeped in my favorite teapot.
She met Ciarrán and suggested I write up his arrival adventure for my lace guild's newsletter. (Now why didn't I think of that?) Not only will his tale be published in the guild newsletter, but also submitted to a local newspaper. And so Ciarrán's fame grows!
Teapot Tuesday Tatting
A quick update on this ongoing project:
Celtic Strawberries have been completed and are ready to send to MotherMark. I have received Carol Lawecki's lovely tatting as well and will be mailing out MotherMark's envelope later this week.
Aren't Carol's samples stunning, not to mention her handmade card with the tatted teapot and butterfly?
Cross your fingers that we will see her tatting show up on MotherMark's hand-made cards sometime in 2010. But the very first teapot photo she ever received ended up as Teapot Tuesday card #76! So we'll just have to wait until inspiration strikes. It will be worth the wait.
I am working on a Shamrock to send her for a future St. Patrick's Day card. I will keep you all posted as Teapot Tuesday details become available. Do drop by her blog, it is always an entertaining read!
