All good things must come to an end....

After almost 8 years in the Dallas Texas area, we are relocating. That's what happens when DH retires! lol
We knew our stay would one day come to an end. Bittersweet. *smile*

My awesome tatting group 'Tuesday Tatters' honored me with a 'Winter Fest Ice Cream Social'. All the fixing to make Ice Cream Sundae's and Banana Splits! It was a wonderful surprise. A big thank you to those of you who put this together and were able to participate.

For over 5 years the group has been more then tatting. Its has brought along great friendship. I have been truly blessed, in many ways. Ladies who are eager and welling to share their talents and appreciate the skills others have to share. But as I have said to each and everyone of them, we are only a click of the PC or phone call away! Don't you just love modern technology! And to mention only a 5 and half hour drive. lol

                                        Here we are, I'm in the middle, sitting down.

I am thankful for those who were able to attend. You have to know how special this was. Speaking of special, I had another surprise.

This lovely card was made by my friend Lucile Doehring! She also had little cards signed by those that were there and even added 'thumbprint hearts'!
The cards fit in the little pocket. Yes, I am loved! *smile* 

Our home sold very quickly and another found just as easily. Early February his will be my new tatting area. I think I am going to love it.  Oh, we'll be in the Ozark Mountain area, with lots and lots of trees, rolling hills and long and winding roads!
Weather permitting it should be perfect.

Good luck with the move and the brand new adventure. The new house looks amazing...the sort of house I would fall in love with as well. The card is nice to know your friends think so much of you xx

What wonderful friends! I'm sure they will be missed. Now you have an opportunity to meet new ones! The new house looks like the tatting area is large enough to host a new tatting group :-)

Good luck on your relocating. It's really nice to have fostered a close network of tatters. Looking forward to seeing more at your new place.
