MAJOR warning - BEWARE

This is a warning that I hope you'll heed. I wasn't sure whether to blog about it or not but in the end decided it was in the sole interest of all tatters worldwide.

I didn't take the decision lightly. I thought about it for days (well, a few minutes, actually). So, hold tight and prepare to be - well, shocked.

This has only come about because I put on big girl's panties last year and traveled alone to the USA and enjoyed the braveness of doing it and getting home again safely. I've been 'nagged' (well asked!) for ten years to go to Canada to teach at the Fringe Element Tat Days so after last year's experience of solo traveling I offered tentatively to go. 

This is the warning - BEWARE - I'm teaching at the Fringe Element in September. Here's the link to see who else is going and what they're offering too.

Oh, I'll also be teaching Kelly to tat. She thinks she can but she uses a needle and we all know that needles are for sewing and not tatting, don't we?

Hmmm.... Big Girl ones eh?? Now the major question is .... are those scissors going to wreak havoc?? VBG

We KNOW you are going to have fun... unless we hijack you at the airport of course.... Rofl

Have fun! I'm really looking forward to seeing Kelly's shuttle tatting. ;-)

Well, now I will have to go! I have never been to any tatting events, they always seem too far, BUT, to maybe get to meet you ... Hummmm so tempting. Glad you are coming to Canada.

The Fringe isn't the only group that has been nagging, begging, pleading and bribing you to come. So when will the Shuttlebirds get to see you?

i'm sorry to disagree, Jane, but needles are for knitting...

We will miss you at Tat Days. Fringe Elements will enjoy having you there. PS - I always enjoyed traveling in my single years. I loved the sense of adventure and doing what I wanted without anyone else around.

That's very exciting for you! And Kelly.

Seriously looking forward to actually meeting Kelly as we've been teasing each other for years!!! Maybe she'll put ants in my bed or other horrific things in revenge, eh? I'll keep you all posted!!! Do hope to meet you, Helene. AHA, Dani, I forgot knitting!!!
