well some of you know I went to Canada for the wonderful tat days!! Well this year we went up on Thursday and didn't plan on coming home until Monday so we had some free time to see some of Canada, well on Friday morning we went to the butterfly conservatory it was great! Then we went to the classes in the afternoon and again all day on Saturday. Then on Sunday we went to Hamilton to see Dundurn Castle it was a great trip and a fun day. Then on Monday we packed the car to come home by the way of Ottawa! I had no idea it was going to be a all day trip we left the hotel around 7:15 and we didn't get to Ottawa until a little after 3!! Then we had a very short visit with David and Justine (Maureen Lawrence's children) It was great to see them both but we had to still drive back home. So we left Ottawa around 4:30 and finally go home around 9:30 It was a very long day but it was a good trip. During the convention I won a auction group that I wanted so badly it was 3 Danish magazines they are wonderful!!! and a shuttle made by a Danish gentle man
I got my results back today from the fair!! All five got accepted i got three blue ribbons( 1st place)! The doily, my tatted poseys and A Christmas ornament. My beaded egg only got honorable mention, and my snowflake (rose Window variation) got a third place. I will try harder next year to get five blues (1st Place)
Here are two of my entries for the New York state fair! I entered 5 items but I didn't take pictures of the others. I will post how I do when I hear.
I worked hard to get things done for the fair. I have hand a problem with my hand for awhile now and finally went to the doctor i had trigger finger, Well I had surgery on Monday so it is all gone my hand still hurts some but it is much better then it was. I am just hoping that when they take off this bandage it gets better soon so I can get back to tatting.
Well my mom has 2 new hips finally!! And is home from rehab from the second the first was in February.
Now i hope i can get back to my old life. I have sent in my paper work for the new York state fair! I have to get a doily done to enter now by august 9th!!! the rest is easy to get done. A Christmas ornament and a snowflake and a vase of tatted poseys. so i will be busy trying to get a doily finished i hope in time. i am doing one from Renulek blog it is the one with the snowflakes in the center i am on row 4 now. So maybe it will be finished or maybe it will finished after the fair, i think i can stop after the snowflake row if i have to then finish it after.
