thread color: marble?

thread color: falling leaves

Now, here's some nature shots

A couple weeks ago I volunteered at the community garden sponsored by my employer (garden is tended by volunteers and lowest income employees get the produce). The work was what I expected; composting, weeding and dusting plants with organic bug killer. I ached for 2 days.

This past weekend was ConTemporal; Steampunk themed convention. I played 2 Pathfinder Society games, ran 1 (We Be Goblins), and ran two Spirit of the Century games. I went to a couple panels (wish I'd gone to more),  socialized and toured the dealer's room. I met some old friends and made some new ones.

I've been tatting a number of bookmarks recently; for my stepmother, for a coworker who left, etc. Now I'm working on a snood. I can't find my white one (I'm sure it's somewhere really safe), and I'll need it for the Fair. C bought me a crocheted one at the Con this weekend. I desperately needed it. The AC was having issues and I was wearing a lot of clothes; my neo-Victorian outfit. Sadly, I didn't get any pictures of myself. Other folks took some, so there's at least 1 floating out there...somewhere.

There's a lot more, but that's enough for one post. Later, I'll report more coherently on my Spirit of the Century games.

There are videos on YouTube, eTatters forum group & HereBeTatters on yahoo; all there to help you learn. Key point: start with a large thread (about size 10) in a multicolor with a strong contrast. It really helps.
