Last Saturday, Karol & I went to House of Stitches in LaPorte. Karol (Rosebud's Stitching blog) is coordinating a SAL for the NANI chapter members of EGA. She had 18 signed up to stitch My Favorite Things by The Drawn Thread. Special Thx to House of Stitches for having everything together -- looked so nice!!! (& thx for the extra special you-know-whats). I'm certain the NANI group will be thrilled to start this project at the chapter meeting in March!
After shopping, I found a basket of tatting shuttles & pattern books. And - GET OUT - guess who knows how to tat? Did you know there was a tatting expert at House of Stitches??? I bought a couple shuttles : ) And may have a couple lessons soon.
Thx to Karol, we met up with Paisley (Stitchin' Post blog), Coni (Spinster Stitcher blog) & Crys (Coni's sister who doesn't have a blog - and who needs one). After filling our shopping baskets we went to Portofino Grill for lunch. We had a smashing good meal, awesome conversation, & promised to get together again soon. Maybe even to stitch!!!
