Oh, my, I haven't been on here since January 2011. Must be I have been busy this year. I haven't done a lot of tatting this year, mostly been on a knitting binge. But, I am going to be teaching a tatting class starting next week! How cool is that? I was a bit apprehensive about doing it as I do not consider myself to be anywhere near an expert but we always want new tatters to join the ranks. I will be teaching in Tawas, Michigan I am planning maybe 6 weeks of classes. Will see how well versed the tatters I have are and how long they want to go on. This whole teaching thing started because I dropped off a pair of tatted baby booties last April at the knit shop and she showed them off and now I am teaching tatting.
This year I also had two additions to my family, a new grandson in Alaska and a great granddaughter in Michigan. I now have one granddaughter and four grandsons and one great granddaughter. I am a lucky grandma.
This weekend we are celebrating my fathers 82nd birthday. We are so blessed to still have him and 22 of us will be home to help him celebrate. That is only about half of us. The rest could not make it home as they all live out of state. All five of us girls will be here tomorrow. Only my brother will be missing and he refuses to come home without an "engraved invitation". We don't mind anymore as we have learned to adjust to his stupidity!
