Palmetto Tat days, travel, weddings, illness....oh my!

Wow, September and October have been a whirlwind. It started with a wonderful trip to the state of Georgia for Palmetto Tat days. I finally got to meet so many people that I have been internet friends with for years but had never met in "real" life. It was so fun! I could only stay for one day of classes so I took a class from Riet and one from Georgia S.

Georgia put forth a challenge and of course I took the bait. She asked for a single long picot on a ring separated by a few knots, not a folded over double picot, and this is what I happily came up with. (Sorry, she made me promise not to tell how I did it.)

Much to my chagrin I have not yet completed Ineke's Owl project taught by Riet, or I would have posted that picture right [here]. I do so dislike having unfinished projects, but with that said, I have to remind myself that I am in the small child raising season of my life, which leaves so little room for anything else. Miss P is so stinkin full of energy! Truly, it's the first thing people comment on when they meet her. I get it people! My kid is HYPER! Lord have mercy on me! But I digress.

After Palmetto Tat Days I rushed off to Seattle to photograph my youngest Sister's wedding. Check out her tatted headdress! She really pulled it off and made such a beautiful bride!

I was able to capture the very moment that she first saw herself in the mirror. She exclaimed, "I look like a princess!"



Miss P did a terrific job of being the flower girl!
After returning from Seattle I got some kind of stupid stage 5 klinger super bug! It took me three full weeks to recover from that one. And mercy me if October hasn't been busy. In fact, it is so busy that I keep forgetting today is my birthday! Yep, I am now the ripe old age of 24...and don't any of you dare accuse me of dyslexia!

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! So good to hear from you and get an update. Miss you, yet must agree you have your priorities right. Miss P is going to grow up and these days are precious even if very busy.

Happy birthday! It does sound like you've been through a whirlwind! Your sister looks lovely in her bridal finery. I'm planning on attending Palmetto Tat Days for the first time next year. I hope you'll be there again!

Beautiful pictures. Hmmmm, I think I may know how you did the single picot!

Happy New Year!

Your sister's wedding headdress is lovely! :-)

I'm intrigued by that single picot. I also have a guess at how you made it...

Anyway, I came here to thank you for your Guardian Angel pattern, which I have just downloaded. Another tatter on Craftree said she would do it in gold thread - wow, that would look great!

GraceT said...

Oops, that should be "Gwen's Angel"! :-)
