HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! I hope you all had a safe and happy Holiday season. Our family went to see Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader for New Years in 3D which was amazing! My sister and I love C.S. Lewis' and his Chronicles series are as wonderful as they are amazing.
It's been so nice to be on break! I've started reading J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit because they are going to be making that movie soon. I'm enjoying that and have come to find that Tolkien and Lewis have very similar writing styles!
Mostly I've been tatting up tid-bits to empty my shuttles; a general New Year's clean up, sort-to-speak. Still going on the hankie edging, too (I'm half-way done with the second round!) My Grandma came out to spend a couple days with us and she was interesting in my tatting, so it was fun to talk about that with her. I came to find out that my Great-Aunt Ivy used to tat!!! How awesome it that! Grandma said that she has a hankie that my Aunt Ivy tatted in her ceder chest, so I hope to take a look at it next time we visit. That was one of the highlights of winter break: I HAVE A RELATIVE THAT USED TO TAT! Too cool.
As I write this Douglas is on the train headed here for a visit. I cannon wait! :) just being in the same timezone, let alone the same state, is such a treat. 
So here is to a blessed New Year! Hurray for 2011!!

It is wonderful to learn of a relative who shared the love of tatting. Last summer, my mom's cousin's wife emailed me that her mother used to tat. She wanted to give me her tatting shuttles, but couldn't find them. I was flattered just to have her think of me as a possible recipient!

Happy New Year, Allison!
