Ice Drop & an Act of Kindness

Tatters are wonderful people. You don't have to be involved with the online community long to discover this is true. When I was very ill earlier this year, I received emails and blog messages from a number of fellow tatters. (Many thanks to all of you!) I was really too ill to tat if you can imagine such a thing, and these emails warmed my heart and made me feel still connected.

One of those emails was followed by a care package. Denise Wessman sent me an Ice Drop kit complete with a beautiful sample of one of her latest variations on Diane's, aka Lace-lovin' Librarian, original pattern. As you can see in the image below, it is a warm, beautiful color. It brings a smile to my face every time I look at it, and I've kept it close for months. I've been slow to get back to doing much tatting, but I finally got my first Ice Drop tatted using one of the drops from Denise's care package. I stuck to Diane's original Ice Drop pattern for this first effort, but I'm still toying with some ideas for my next.

As you can see, Denise provided everything I might need.
Thank you, Denise!
