One of the reasons I love living in this town is because people come here!
Katte and Darla are in England at the moment taking in as many of the sights as they can fit in during a two week stay. Fortunately they came through town yesterday and we had a lovely day walking around the sights. Shame they brought a really cold wind with them but at least they left the rain down in Portsmouth!!!
So, when we got to the theatre and had a cuppa and a bite to eat it was then time to talk tatting. We highjacked a table and got our goodies out. Well, they did but I left home in such a rush I'd got nothing with me except what is always in my handbag.
I must say I was very impressed with Katte's tools that she's invented and shared and will tell and show you those another day. Meantime I've managed to scan two shuttles they gave me. The one is made of leather and the other is hand painted bone. It's SOOOO delicate that the lady who does them has to use a magnifying glass.
You can see the two tourists doing 'touristy things' and taking photos of the Birthplace. Bless their cotton socks. OR in Darla's case - hand knitted socks!!!
Great day and thank you both for 'popping in' to my town and getting in touch.
