No pictures of tatting today although I've been tatting hard and heavy to get everything done. My time was taken up this past week getting ready for this past weekend's craft fair. I was mainly working on my painted gourds. I also like to demonstrate tatting when I'm doing a craft fair. All in all it went pretty good. I sell tatting and gourds to make a little extra spending money to spend on. . . .
Give up? To spend on more tatting supplies of course! Wooo Hooo!
I have an observation about craft fairs and a little complaint, now don't run away just a little complaint. I have increasingly noticed that when I show my tatting at craft fairs there are a lot of other stuff there. For example, at this last craft show I did this past weekend, Hot teas and house plants are not a craft. Tupperware, Pampered chef and Premiere Jewelry are also not crafts. Worst of all there was a chiropractic clinic there advertising for their clinic. DEFINTELY NOT A CRAFT! Wouldn't you think? Sorry it just irritates me a little when I do a show and there's stuff like this being sold at a "craft" fair. I've been to one show where a vendor beside me was selling costume jewelry and not the kind made by her but store bought stuff. Ugh! Nice people but still not what I would consider a craft. On the up side though I have shown what tatting is and a lot more people are starting to recognize it. I got a lot of questions about tatting so that was fun talking to people and demonstrating.
Oh still have no news on the curve ball I mentioned earlier but stay tuned it's coming. I have to go get the son up for school.
