I'm still here in Washington, DC, with my daughter and her family. Shortly after I got here I received an email from IsDihara
. As she lives close by, she asked if I'd like to me her. !!! Of course! To meet another tatter and one who blogs as well - oh, yeah!
We didn't meet right away because I was here to help my daughter after she had surgery. By this week she was feeling much better and ready to get out of the house. So I emailed IsDihara
and we arranged to me at the Potomac Mills Mall. And on Tuesday, no less!
Here we are, IsDihara
on the left, me on the right, having a cup of tea. As neither of us knew what the other looked like it was like, how will we know who the other is? As I knew we (my daughter, her baby and my husband) were there first I figured the easiest way to let her know that it was me was to pull out my shuttles. So there we sat, in the food court of the mall, me tatting away. She had no trouble finding me!
I was so glad we could meet! As my daughter said to me later, IsDihara
and I could have spent all afternoon talking. And she brought me the prize I won from her Halloween giveaway! How fortuitous is that!
Isn't this pretty? This isn't the best picture - it's wonderful in person. It has a tatted pumpkin edging around it and the front has a pumpkin. Check out her blog Ambitatterous
, I think her picture is better.
It was a great afternoon, a wonderful Tatting Tea Tuesday!
I have gotten a little tatting done. As I'm away from home I only have a few colors to work with so I've been doing a lot in the Lizbeth Falling Leaves in size 20. These two butterflies are my pattern, with Lizbeth size 20 black as the body and the edging. The heart is Tracy's Heart, by Heather from The Tarnished Tatter
, in the same threads. This heart is easy to do and will come in handy for notes and letters and such.
This has been a great week here with my daughter and her family. And a little extra bonus meeting another tatting blogger! And I've even seen a little of Washington - more tomorrow, I hope!
Happy Tatting everyone!
