we had a guided walking tour of downtown Charleston which was very interesting. we happened to be the only ones in that particular group so a 2 hour tour turned into a 3 hour tour with lots of information. here are a couple of pictures from the tour
|good example of what is called a "single house"|
we also spent some time walking through the blocks long open air market they have in downtown Charleston. I bought some sweetgrass trivets. I love the sweetgrass baskets that many of the artisans make, but can't afford the prices. I understand their need to price their work, but my pockets just aren't that deep.
On Saturday I bummed a ride from Theresa to the Palmetto Tatters monthly meeting. We had a great time on the ride, it is about 1.5 hrs between Goose Creek and the Lexington county Museum where the group meets. we had no difficulty finding things to talk about. I have yet to meet a Tatter that isn't an instant friend. Thanks Theresa for the ride and conversation.
This is the snowflake using the Lock Chain technique that was taught at the meeting.
not the greatest example of tension but, I had a lot of fun talking and sharing.
Thanksgiving evening, we made a trip to a park on James Island to the Festival of Lights.
******my computer shut off on me last night. I was able to grab these from my online picture album, so am going to post this much this morning while at work. The rest of the stuff and the tatting I wanted to show, will have to wait until after work tonight.
