Visit with Diane and her mom Nancy

We had a wonderful time! I don't have the pictures downloaded yet, but the ones on Diane's blog pretty much say it all. We were instantly comfortable and giggled like school girls, which is totally unlike me.
Per Sherry's directions, I helped Diane learn a split ring and a single shuttle split ring. She was a natural.
Diane had me the most wonderful "Purpleicious" bag of goodies. I have made pictures and will post later. She was much too generous, but I'm glad! You will be sooo jealous.
I wish we could have visited longer. Maybe she will be back again soon.
More later.
Thank you again Diane and Nancy for a wonderful day I won't soon forget. Thank you also for sharing your time with me. Have a safe trip home Diane.

Hi Laura, I am so happy for you that you got to spend time with a fellow tatter and it sounds like everyone had a very good time. Congratulations on teaching Diane the split ring.

We did giggle like school girls! I'd love to get together again! Maybe some day you and Bill will decide to take a trip to Chicago...

Thanks Pamela. I sure am glad to be one of your favorites! It was like a fair tale. I do hope she will be back.
We did have a wonderful time TattingChic. It was great. Photos when I get home.
Sherry, we smiled so much my face hurt that night. LOL We had a great time. More of my version soon.

Thank you Clyde. It was a dream come true. I had only spent time with 3 other tatters - ever. Elizabeth and J.B. in Mobile and Nancy in Birmingham. I hope we will be able to do it again. Maybe next time we can get Elizabeth and J.B. involved. Bill will just have to leave town! She learned the split ring in short order.
Yes, giggling Diane. Maybe Bill and I can visit Chicago one day.
Thanks Madeline. We had so much fun. We'll see you soon!
