Yesterday I had to take a friend to the pain clinic 
for her appointment.  These appointments are 
usually around 2 hours or so.  Well, I had packed 
up my doily to take along and tat, but, I grabbed 
my purse which was sitting right next to the tatting 
and walked out assured that I was prepared and on 
time.  Yep....NOPE!!!  I got there to pick her up 
and realized that I had forgotten my tatting.  Oh 
well, life goes on.  She says, oh no! you will have 
to just sit there the whole time(totally disappoint-
ed for me).  I assured her I would survive.
Well, when she got called back to the doctor I 
saw a lady knitting and moved over to a seat
near her and asked what she was knitting.  She 
said it was a baby blanket for the local pregnancy 
center.  I told her I would be tatting, but I made 
a mistake and forgot it at home.  Well, she asked 
about tatting and was really interested, when I 
remembered I had and Ice Drop( right one in 
the picture below), and I took it out and she really
like it so I gave it to her.
She was so surprised that I would give it to her, 
she stopped and then grabbed these beautiful little
scissors out of her bag and said here.  I said, but 
you will need those, she said, don't worry, I have 
another pair(and showed me the other pair).
She was so sweet! So, now I have new tatting 
scissors!!  ;)
I have gotten another angel done for the orders 
I have.  And I am continuing to tat those twin 
Have a wonderful day!!! :)

The kindness of strangers ... isn't it wonderful? It might not have been if you hadn't forgotten your tatting, right?

I like encounters like that. Now another person knows what tatting is and you have another pair of scissors!

Now that's what I call sharing the love! We had several people stop to see what we were doing yesterday at Tollway Tatters, and I was able to pass out several Ice Drops. One lady said her grandmother used to tat. Another said she was from Texas. Nancy noticed that even men were glancing to see what was up. We just never know when we will have an opportunity to interest people in tatting!

It was a great time and she said she was interested in tatting after our talk. :)

You had a great afternoon, I hate sitting fir appointments with nothing to do, I have some tatting permantly in my bag,, it’s a hanky that appears every so often no idea if and when I will finish it.
I am sure she came away with some knowledge of tatting and something nice to show her friends in the same way you have a beautiful pair of scissors

Lovely flakes !!!

Hmm, seems like these scissors actually created ties/bonds rather than cut them ;-D
