So many thanks
Thank you to all who support creative arts. I have had a strange week, starting with the "Monday from the twilight zone...."
Seriously??? 4 patterns from the same designer on a magazine cover without asking permission??? I still don't know what I should say, but Corina Meyfeldt has written a very good post on her blog, explaining how copyright violation hurts the artist and ultimately hurts everyone.
Well, it snowed here and Easter is this coming Sunday. I don't have any pretty Easter egg tatting to show you - since I volunteer for church music, holy week is the busiest week of the year. Actually, I "volunteered" to play cello to accompany the choir - I got "drafted" to sing in the choir. No, not both at the same time :)
The enigmatic photo at left is just a peek at my current tatting for a "secret project". Not saying more just now, except that the issues with design theft have made me realize that sometimes it's good to have friends in high places.
Greater Milwaukee Tatting Guild meeting was this past Monday the 14th, but only one other person showed up (probably due to the snow). The 2 of us had fun together, but didn't bother to take pictures. I had to leave at 5:15 for a music rehearsal.
Happy spring to all who live in the northern hemisphere, and to those "down under", happy fall!
