My precious friend, D in California, sent fifty (50!) hats a few weeks ago. She was delighted to receive her Thank You note. Some day she'll send me pictures for the blog.... nudge, nudge, hint, hint...
At the end of September I had the privilege of attending the Fringe Element Tatters Fall Into Tatting Weekend in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. One of my room-mates was Karey Solomon of Graceful Arts Fiber Studio in Hector, NY. She picked me up at the Buffalo airport and drove me to Cambridge. We had a GREAT weekend: tatting and chatting, learning and tatting, shopping and taking chances on raffles or auctions, and tatting and chatting. It was so wonderful. If only special weekends could last longer. Sigh.
Karey sent me some BEAUTIFUL hand-spun yarn for the 310 Hats project. My daughter, F., has won a set of Knitter's Pride Symfonie crochet hooks from the September Share Your Pride video contest. We look forward to their arrival so that she can make a hat for the project with the beautiful hand-spun hand-dyed yarn from Karey.
You can visit Karey's blog or her store. I will post pictures as the hats are made with the very special yarn!
Happy Birthday to the father of E1 and E2. He's rooting for the 310 Hats project from Heaven. On the day he turned 80, about FIVE babies were born on the NMSL sewing list. (I think it was five. I know it was at least a handful!) So, Happy Birthday to Dad and a whole bunch of delightful NMSL babies!!!
