FYI, just wanted to let Jess Foster, Tabatha Burkholder, and Jane Galley know that the PIF packages have been mailed Thank you for your patience. Hope you enjoy.

It seemed that that was all I could say for the first day and a half. It was AMAZING.
The people, the knowledge floating around in the air, the enthusiasm of everyone, the wonderful display of tatted pieces, the silent auction items, and of course the vending room--I could go on.
You all know this was my first time to attend and I really do feel as though I walked around in awe the entire time.
From the time of my arrival til departure time, the hospitality of everyone was so incredible. The knowledge seriously floated in the air, whether it was in a class or just visiting in the lobby area, chatting in line or at the table in the dining hall, or just walking through any of the areas. Gosh, I do not mean to sound like a marketing brochure. But, AWE was the state that I was in.
Some of the people I got to meet and take classes from:
Jane Eborall!!!! WOW! I got to meet her in person.
Plus so many more that I met. I am terrible with names...so please do not get your feelings hurt if I do not mention your name. It was also good to see Georgia, Gwen and others from previous Atlanta Workshops that I attended.
Sorry this is late--Life really does get in the way.

I can not wait to meet all of you wonderful tatting friends in person that will be there. Please send me some tips and hints on how to make the most of that weekend. Do I need to get lots of sleep the week before to "try to build up before sleep deprivation" or "bring lots of energy drinks and bars for stamina"? Also, will I receive a list of supplies to bring or do I bring most everything in my tatting closet incase I need it?
Gosh, I sound like a newbie nerd. But, I am just so excited.

I will make something handmade for each of the first 3 people that signs up for my PIF. Then each of those people will carry on the PIF on their blog and in turn will send something handmade to three people, and so on.
So who would like to receive a lovely handmade gift? And maybe even a little surprise with it. Just leave a comment on this post and make sure you have your email showing on blogger and I'll be in touch soon! Thanks! I will take just the first 3 that leave a comment and are willing to follow up with a PIF when they get the one I send.
Are there any participants out there?

The mail brought me these two beautiful threads from Tatilicious. First is Fancy Fields and then Rainbow-licious. Now, the hard part is choosing a pattern to showcase the thread the best.
Unfortunately, I have not been tatting much since Easter. My new thread is calling me to get started on something creative.

I'm trying so hard to get at least a dozen eggs done before Easter. There are two dozen eggs in the book--not sure all of them will be made. I have got to get done with these so that I can go on to the tat a long project. I am enjoying watching the progress of all the participants. I also want to make Karey Solomons "Lady" bookmark from her new "Bouquet of Bookmarks" book. It is so different and interesting.

I began my blog because she hosted a PIF giveaway, and I won. One of the stipulations was that the winner would post the PIF picture on their blog and host a giveaway to "pay it forward". Gina was very instrumental in the creation of my blog and gave me excellent advice. I have a few pieces of her tatting and crochet--they were already precious to me, now they are even more so.
I will miss her tremendously. My prayers are with her family.

Thank you Jane for hosting so much fun for tat land. You are an incredible teacher and so generous to share your love of tatting and vast knowledge with us. I personally hope that one day I will be able to meet you at one of the wonderful tatting workshops.
This is motif #5 in the 25 Motif Challenge.

Also, here is Jane's new tree ornament. I loved this tree when I saw it made with ribbon on sunshineyellow-stitches.blogspot.com. So when Jane made the tatted one, I was so excited and had to make one. This will be the Christmas ornament for all the ladies in my family this year. So far they have only received snowflakes.Happy tatting while waiting for day 5,

Here are pictures of the wonderful SS packages that I received. I love all the goodies in both packages.
This is from Michelle Brewer Vitt, I enjoyed wearing the snowflake set so much and received lots of compliments. I have made the beaded angel now and it is too cute. It's ready for the Christmas tree next year. This is from Tami Drader. The snowflakes are beautiful. She made the prairie bag. It is so cool and perfect for tatting.
