Prepping for Tat Days

I'm getting ready for Palmetto Tat Days. I went last year and had a great time. I won't be staying there - will be staying up the hill with Mom. Plus Friday is my birthday, and there's nothing like Mom's cooking as a birthday present. The Stooges will be staying home with DH. Woo-hoo! Freedom!

A bit of what I've done recently - I tatted this Mary Konior cross and gave it to my neighbor, who is very ill. Martha just tatted this in white. Her cross is gorgeous. The outside of my cross is Lizbeth Navy, size 20. The inside is done in HDT, LadyShuttleMaker's Fuschia, size 20.

And speaking of LadyShuttleMaker - check out her giveaway! Worth a look - you might win. I want to win! I'm addicted to HDT.

So I'm prepping for Palmetto Tat Days, and I've gotta work too. Last night I was dialed into my office, hunched over an ugly report and some spreadsheets - my favorite! (Not.) But I made sure I took time out to watch Glee! Larry and I chortled the whole hour. For this old musical theater buff, it was so much fun! Plus, it's hilarious and sarcastic. Jane Lynch plays this wonderfully horrible character, the obsessed cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester. Here are my favorite quotes from last night:

Sue, giving bad advice to Will Schuester about his glee club (she hates the glee club)," You do with your depressing little group of kids what I did to my wealthy elderly mother: euthanize it."

Later - Quinn the cheerleader tells her Celibacy Club, while they practice intimacy with a balloon between couples, “Now remember: if the balloon pops, the noise makes the angels cry.”

OMG OMG too funny. Watch it online if you missed it.


I've got to get packing! Can't wait for Tat Days! But first, a look at what I got last year in Tat Days vending. (It's a good thing DH and I have separate checking accounts.)

Hope to see you there!


  1. Fortunate you, going to Palmetto! Twice! BTW HAPPY NATAL DAY! My youngest daughter's birthday is Friday the 11th. 1961, a day that will live in infamy (sounds familiar...errrr)
    Enjoyed your post; we have a lot of the same books. I don't have the one with the purple cover ~ I don't think. (wicked grin)
    Rained cats and dogs and the gods were bowling today; Big lightening and thunder up here on the ridge. Our monsoon season is really late this year; must be going to have a snowy winter. Bah Humbug. But high desert needs water, too.
    Happy Tatting! Bev

  2. Hello! Your cross looks great!! I like the color combination. I'm sure your neighbor will appreciate it. Have a great time at Palemetto's Tat Day!!

  3. Your tating is beautiful! My mom has been trying to figure out the tating process. She loves to knit and crochet. But tating seems to be out of her reach at the moment. lol


  4. That cross is pretty! I will go check out Martha's cross. I haven't been keeping up with tatting blogs (or any blogs for that matter) lately like I usually do.

    Look at the fun stash you got last year! Can't wait to see what you come back with this year!

    Aren't ya glad you started a tatting blog? Look at all these fabulous tatting goodies you have to share! :)
