Been a while.

Gosh is it really August since I last posted?

Ok catch up time.

I went to Denmark in September. A trip that I had planned and paid for quite a while ago and considering everything that happened recently I thought there was no point putting it off.

Thanks to Susanne I saw a lot of Denmark in a short period of time. Got to drive, go to a tat day with the Danish Tatting Association and spent some time with Inga Madsen and her family.

It was a good trip and I enjoyed it a lot. Susanne has photos up on her blog http://dantatter.blogspot.com/  with some good history of  the places we went, so I won't post any others on here. (But you know I just WILL sooner or later....when I finally sort through the thousand or so that I took.....no...REALLY.....that many!!)

One of the places we stayed was a lovely little bed and breakfast in Skagen run by a lovely lady named Arla. She gifted me one of her paintings she had done so I tatted a small mat for her in the colors of Skagen. The houses there are mostly gorgeous little cottages that are painted yellow, with white picket fences and red tile roof. Such a quaint little town.
Other than this I have not done much tatting since I came back.
