I had a lot of fun today celebrating International Tatting Day.
Becky, Sherry, and me at Montana Mike's Steakhouse
( I should have moved over with the others so the window wasn't directly behind us)
Had lunch with two ladies that are my students. We get together once a month to tat and this month it was in public with tatting and chocolate. I brought Hershey's kisses in several varieties, something for everyone.
Becky and Sherry
I put the tatted buttons I've been working on in a teacup. The other teacup has the chocolate. I also had a candy bowl with several shuttles wound with a yard of size 10 red thread and card stock wrapped with 2 yards of size 10 white thread. These were to be given away if anyone was interested in trying and wanted them. I demonstrated for one interested person but she didn't take a shuttle. We had several people stop and ask questions about what we were doing and were very impressed. No-one turned down the buttons when offered one.
Sherry was having a little trouble and Becky helped her out. Nothing ensures you know what your doing as much as having to demonstrate and help someone else.
I think I gave out about 10 buttons while we were out today. At work I gave out the other 15 I had, along with a Hershey kiss.
I guess I need to make more buttons :-)
I hope all of you enjoyed International Tatting Day where-ever you were.
