First off, I would like to thank everyone who has ordered my new teapot book, and everyone who has said such nice things about it on their blogs.
I am sooo busy trying to get ready for Hector. I've strung beads for Ginny's class, but I need to find/empty some shuttles for Karey's class and find some more to demo in the class I'm teaching. I remembered to recharge the camera battery, but I forgot to buy eggs for the brownies I was going to make. I need to bind some more books. When will I pack?? Gaaaah!!!
Here's a hint for anyone taking my class. There will be 3 cut and ties in the pattern. If you wind 5 1/2 yards each of the 2 contrasting colors of thread on your shuttles, that should be enough for the first 2 sections.
I am looking forward to seeing old friends there and meeting new ones. I hope to be there in time for supper Friday night. (I'll be the tired, dopey redhead.) Karey recommended the Seneca Lodge and that's where I'm staying. I hope some other tatting folks will be there too. It would be great if I could find someone to ride with to the fire hall so DH and autistic DS3 can sleep late instead of delivering me there. I get to play tatting all day while they go sight seeing.
3 am, really must go to bed.
Another one - I just don't need any excuses to tat this pattern. Not sure why but I just totally love it. Actually, I'll be honest, I love all Rosemarie Peel's work ...
