It has rained here for two days. The wind has been howling on and off, too. Last Tuesday's moon was a golden yellow orange color that reminded me of a pumpkin. The air is still thick with dust raised by the combines harvesting the corn fields.
This reminds me of that wonderful tatted basket that Anita Barry made.

And then my minds turns to the harvest festival.
This our-day long holiday coming up is a great time to think about projects for the coming winter (or summer down under.)
Small motifs to decorate holiday apparel or dangle from the holiday tree.
Or perhaps study some vintage tatting.
Steps to Modernize Vintage Tatting Patterns.
Or even do some self-improvement study.

Or perhaps share your tatting in a special manner. There is a national organization called "Newborns in Need." This group embellishes clothes for babies in need. They also prepare burial layettes. Tatters may donate tatted lace to embellish these tiny outfits all year long.
However you spend your time please include tatting.
