Less than a Week Away!

Can you see the Big Dipper? 

Just a week until the Finger Lakes Tatting Conference in Lodi.  Our theme is stars!  Last week I finished sewing stars from across the U.S. and Canada on the quilt and quilting around them.  When I was almost done, an envelope with more stars appeared.  Here is our Starry Night quilt – you can see almost all the stars.  It’s hard to count them all, but Bill and I estimated there’s about 135 tatted stars on the quilt – that’s a rough estimate.  Could be a lot more or a few less. 

The quilt will be auctioned off Saturday, April 13 at 7 pm.  There’s a reserve of $250 on it, and we are accepting good-faith bids from outside our group – contact me with your phone number where you can be reached if you want to join the bidding at the time – or you can put in your high bid and you just might win!  All the money from the quilt will go into our scholarship fund, to enable more tatters to attend the
