Happy Anniversary to me, and a little giveaway to celebrate!
So, I thought real hard as to what I was doing while I was trying to teach myself. Then it hit me... I was watching Lemonade Mouth, because it had come in the mail. So, I went Amazon, searched my old orders...
and it arrived at my house on May 28th, but it was most likely the 29th that I actually watched it, since we had also order Gnomeo and Juliet.
So, woo hoo!
I've been tatting for a whole year now!
So in celebration, how about a giveaway?
To enter: leave a comment on this post with a color suggestion for a future Tat-ilicious colorway and a name for that colorway.
PLEASE make sure that you either leave your email address in the post if it is not posted on your profile. If you don't want to go public with your email address, then feel free to email me after you have posted your entry. I love chatting through email anyway. :o) I can be somewhat of a "last word freak" (unintentionally of course)... so feel free to not respond to me if I keep emailing you back.
What's the prize?
at least one skein of your colorway idea (or at least as close I can get to it) (in a size of 20, 40, 60, or 80... your choice)
plus more Tat-ilicious HDT (it will be a surprise as to how many... as I don't know yet) (specifics will probably heavily depend on your size preference)
and maybe some beads, that I feel coordinate with the thread/s. :o)
***OH YEA: I'll chose a random winner on Friday June 8th Hopefully we can get a few entries between now and then :o)
And also, remember, I won't be replying to any of the comments, unless its through email. But that's only so I don't confuse myself when it comes to number the comments.
Row 4: finished!

Well, im still out of town. But we are making the trip back to memphis tomorrow.
My granny afghan by maynard. I ordered her book before i left. Its waiting for me at the house. But, this pattern was on the web. Well a picture of it anyway. I still have two more rows for the center. I like it so far.
The secret of course is to hide the ends along the way.
and this has turned out to be a productive trip...
I got my brothers girlfriend tatting.
Once i get a pic of her tatting ill share it :o)

Ever since Livi saw Eliz show that boy at Mcdonalds to tat by holding the working thread she has wanted me to teach her to tat that way. :o)
I also have video but my tablet wont let me upload video.

99 skeins out the door (and a very short video of my tatting)
Unfortunately, the shop will be on vacation for the next week (starting tomorrow afternoon) because I am going out of town! I am SOO excited!!
I am taking Livi to Knoxville to see the Imagination Movers in concert, which will be on Sunday. I got us the good tickets too. The good tickets get you a wristband which gets you into the after party. So Livi will get to see a private show and actually get to meet the Movers and have her picture taken with them!! We are super excited!!
THEN! Since I hardly ever go ANY WHERE , we are going to stay a few extra days and hang out with my little brother. We are even planning on going to the zoo.
I'm still trying to think of a special pattern to tat while I'm gone. If I don't have a game plan, I'll just be messing around and then not get anything done. I just ordered Maynard's 4 square ring. I saw a picture where someone had tatted one of her patterns. I won't get the book until I get back in town, but I was thinking about starting it. I figured I shouldn't feel too bad about using the other tatters picture as a pattern since I did buy the book for myself... right?
OR I will work on one the doillies from Neibach's Tatted Doilies.
OR choosing one of Koniors patterns that can be connected together and making a bunch of those.
choices choices choices....
I officially ran out of size 40 thread off the cone, but I am planning on taking my size 20 cone and wind some skeins. Don't worry, my size 40 fans, I have a new size 40 cone in the mail on the way to me as I type!

I finally got to meet another tatter!!
Tatknot (Eliz) today. We met at McDonalds so that Livi could play on the playset, and let me tell ya- she played hard. We stay for a little over five hours and Livi still said, "That was too much fun! Next time, can we stay longer, like 6 or 70 hours " I feel like I didn't actually get that much tatting done, but that's alright I had a blast!
Eliz even got to teach a little boy how to tat... how sweet!!

Trying something a little new (for me at least)
Step by Step for "Jess!'s One Shuttle Heart"
** or try this new link: http://freepdfhosting.com/512121ddc5.pdf
It still needs some work. But more for formatting and font size issues than for actual content reasons.
Once I get that sorted out I will figure out how to add a link to side and will change the link address.
But, basically, I did one of my one shuttle hearts and took a picture of the heart after every ring. lol
