Where tatting can take you

It's been 4 months since I have written here and some might think I have given up my blog. But I haven't, it is just that I have not tatted much for months due to health issues and some other stuff. But there's something I want to say and it has to be today or it will be "old news".
I discovered tatting online 8 years ago and it has had an impact on my tatting skills and mostly been a huge source of inspiration which I needed so badly. What I did not know then was all the friends I would get worldwide because we all make small knots with fine threads.
Right now Liyarra is sitting in a plane 10-11 km above the surface of the earth somewhere between Singapore and London and in about 19 hours she will arrive here where I live. Lots of things have happened but after all it was possible to make the trip.
I know it is a hard and very long way coming here from Australia but I hope she will think it is worth every minute it takes because it is my plan that we are going to have 19 wonderful days together. We will be tourists here, we will tat, we are going to a tat-day to meet a lot of Danish tatters and most of all we will spend time together as very close friends. I am so looking forward to her arrival, I have had a billion butterflies in my stomach these last 2-3 days because it is getting so close now.
I do not hope you who might read this think it's been boring or a weird thing to write about. I am sure there will be tatting to write about and show these next 3 weeks. But you see tatting can take us anywhere and in more than one way.
The picture is just a small motif I have done, nothing special though. There's also a doily to post here but Liyarra have to see it first because there's some symbolism in the way I have done it.
Now it is back to handling all those butterflies and some final preparations to do. See you.
