Superbowl BD Ice Drop - Wally Sosa
Wally Sosa 0„82018
Wally Sosa of needles-n-shuttles.com is a long time member of the Online Tatting Class which celebrates its 19th year online in 2018. The class has a tradition of a special meeting on Superbowl Sunday. Wally's birthday falls around that time as well. So Wally has been kind enough to prepare a tatting pattern to share in honor of both occasions for many years. We thank her for this new one.
