Just to say Hi....

Just dropping in to say howdy, and let you know that Dr. Vonthreadmore has made her way back to the US.... many postcards have arrived and I'll post them in the coming days.

Until then,

The tatter from Gloucester

We recently had a surprise visit at the lace guild. Linda, from Gloucester, dropped in with all sorts of beautiful tatted goodies to show off! She even brought along a project to share.... beautiful ornaments made with edgings and cereal box cardboard and fabric. I've saved the supplies so I can make a tatted ornament for the christmas tree this year :-) Several ladies from the guild are in this picture that Linda just sent me. Linda is on the far left, and the Shuttlebirds attendees reading this may recognize two of the younger teachers (Sarah N, and Jessica S) in the back row center.
This visit from Linda was a surprise for me, otherwise I would have had my camera to take pictures of more of the beautiful things she had made.

Sunday should bring another tatting meetup for me, a tatter from Australia who has purchased thread from me is in Seattle this weekend, and I plan on heading up there tomorrow to visit with her.

The sights of Alaska.

Cindy in Seward Alaska was kept quite busy by Dr. V as they saw many of the beautiful sights. The doctor was reportedly flightseeing, and actually took off her mask (after much prompting) to breathe in the fresh air. The northern lights must have been spectacular, because it takes something extrordinary to render Dr. Vonthreadmore speechless. (trust me, I've tried :-P)

Rocky mountain way

I'm sure she frolicked when she saw this lovely field of wildflowers. Dr. Vonthreadmore might tell you otherwise, but I have on occasion caught her in a shameless display of delight. She was spotted in Ohio not too long ago..... I wonder where she could be headed next!

A quick stop in Canada

Caught contemplating the beauty of the Sunset over lake Ontario, Fox was kind enough to send off this card on behalf of Dr. Vonthreadmore who was enjoying the dining experience atop the Tower.

A little birdie told me....

I was informed via postcard this week that Dr. Vonthreadmore made a stop in Minnesota. She spent some time chatting with Cindy chatting up various parts of her decor, while sipping Ginger tea. Dr. Vonthreadmore also enjoyed the outdoor Salsa garden.

More from Dr. Vonthreadmore's travels tomorrow and all this week!

It's not too late!

The official deadline/cutoff for the Globetrotter giveaway is September 30th when selections will be made...... and Dr. Vonthreadmore says she might have a few more quick stops to make on her way back home. So you still have time if you'd like to participate!
