Tatting in the Wilds

Sad news - the group that ran the Virginia State Fair has gone bankrupt - No More State Fair.

Never having gone to a state fair as a child, I went looking for information on the Pennsylvania State Fair. I found this handy county fair web guide with map: 2011 PA Fair Guide

I grew up in the green section of the map labelled "Pennsylvania Wilds." Who knew the sleepy borough of my youth was in the wilds?

Do you tat in the wilds?
Tatting in the "wilds" sounds like civilized handwork gone rogue, suddenly untamed and free. But we all know that before the Internet age, most of us tatted in the wilds. Separate and alone.

If you or someone you know tats in the wilds, I would love to know.

Want a sneak peek of the project I have been working on?

It has been a pick-up-and-put-down project for the past month. Not because the pattern is difficult, rather too many interruptions and distractions. I hope to finish it this weekend.
