Everyone who reads Ladytat's blog knows that Jeanne planned a trip to Charleston, SC. When she contacted me to inquire about the upcoming Palmetto Tatters meeting (which was yesterday), I was thrilled that she might come visit with us!
It is one of the very nicest things, to meet in person someone with whom you've corresponded online. Jeanne is a wonderful, very down-to-earth person - and a terrific tatter! She brought show-'n-tell items, including a pair of earrings that tried to play hide-and-seek.
The lesson was Riet Surtel-Smeulders' Lock-Chain Snowflake, which she taught at the 2011 Tat Days - Tatting in a Winter Wonderland's Night Owls session. It's a cute pattern, and it's included on the Pattern CD - which you can order here. I tied mine to my (current) tatting bag!
We had a wonderful time yesterday tatting and chatting, and finished up with supper at a local restaurant, Lizard's Thicket, which is just good home cookin'. Yumm!!
Greenwood Christmas tree, resplendent in lights on the square. We were on our way home, and on a whim, I shot this through the truck window. It was only about 8.30, although it looks like midnight!
