Celebrating 1 year

 The Greater Milwaukee Tatting Guild has been around for 1 year! To celebrate, there were 2 door prize giveaways. The prize packages included Lizbeth thread, beads, candy, and other goodies, plus a printed copy of the book, Marilee's Beaded Tatting Finery

 Tatting being worked on at this meeting included small flower experiments. The photo below shows practice pieces, but one of the guild members has an idea for decorating a tablecloth with similar tatted flowers.

  Sue Anna had just finished tatting these "feather" earrings, from a pattern in Marilee's new book. The thread is Lizbeth, in an unknown color combo.

Candy was in plentiful supply to keep up our energy! The cold winter temperature outside will take care of any extra calories :)
