Oh my goodness! Hi everybody! So I have been officially without Internet for a whole year. Can you believe it! It's torture. We are hoping to find a solution to this problem in April. Please hang with me everybody, I am sooooo sorry! In the meantime, I am become a farmer. We have lots of chickens and I am working on a big garden and Miss P is having the time of her life! We also do not have television so I am completely out of the loop. Anyhow, it is my hope to get this blog and my Etsy shop going once again as soon as I physically can. Happy Tatting everybody!

Ok, so I still do not have Internet Access at home, so that is the reason this blog seems all but dead. I apologize. We must live in the last place in the US that doesn't have internet, I swear, at least once a day I holler in frustration about my inability to stay connected to the world. We can't even get any companies to run cable out for us. Our only option at this point is a certain satellite service that is prohibitively costly. Sooooooo, that leaves me with only being able to use our local library, and I have been waaaaayyyy too busy for even that as of late. So much has happened since our move to Mississippi and the purchase of "The Farm". I feel like I have lived a lifetime already, when in actuality it has only been six months. I don't want to make any promises I can't keep, but I will say that as soon as we can find a solution to our Internet problem I have full intentions of resuming this blog, and my tatting business. I'm still here guys!

Just a quick note to let you all know I am still alive! I am currently surrounded by boxes that need to be unpacked. And for some crazy unexplainable reason I decided to turn my new home into a construction area right away. Lot's of remodeling going on. It isn't boring. I hope to set up my tatting life once again and start dyeing my hand dyed cotton and silk threads soon. Thank you for bearing with me and my insane life!

That is right. The BIG move is finally upon me. It's bittersweet. Moving is tough and I've done it more times than should be legal. We have been blessed with the most incredible property I could have ever wished for. I am mostly excited about what kind of childhood this new chapter will provide for my sweet Piccadilly! We bought a 43 acre farm and it is amazing. I will share more about that once I am settled. It will be an indeterminate amount of time before we will have internet again. We are remote enough that internet service is currently out of our financial reach. I figure I can go to the library once a week to catch up and blog etc. So for awhile I will be slow to respond to emails and things of that nature. Please forgive me in advance.
I wanted to share this bit of providence. I was able to purchase two of these vintage wooden DMC display cases from an old variety store that went out of business. This same store is where I purchased my first tatting shuttle at a very young age. So these boxes will be great reminders and a great addition to my tatting collection. I think they will house my hand dyed tatting thread in the near future.
As promised, I am sharing a few goofy wallpaper pics from my real estate search. As I mentioned before, the irony is that our farmhouse is top to bottom decorated in 80's style wallpaper. I have a LOT of work ahead of me.
I know this is a totally normal picture. But I had to share it because this is a pretty amazing story. This picture is from a home that was our second choice to purchase. Do you notice the orange spoon rest on the oven there? I made and sold that 10 years ago. No, I don't know the person who I sold it to as I sold hundreds of pieces of pottery in that area at the time. Anyhow, I almost dropped dead when I saw it! What are the chances and how cool is that?!?!?
Happy Tatting until next time friends!
