God Bless you this morning.

Hope life is well for everyone.

First off “Grandma’s Pantry” is already done I’m waiting for the proof book to arrive but orders are already coming in.

“Land of Horses” is selling faster than I can order the books.

April 14th is the Book signing and I probably won’t be ordering more until after the book signing. So if you are in a hurry I need your order this week or you will be put on the back order list.

1 April Fool’s Day

April Fools’ Day is celebrated in the Western world on the 1st of April of every year. Sometimes referred to as All Fools’ Day, 1st April is not a legal holiday, but is widely recognized and celebrated as a day which tolerates practical jokes and general foolishness. The day is marked by the commission of good-humored or funny jokes, hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, teachers, neighbors, work associates, etc.

Traditionally, in some countries such as New Zealand, the UK, Australia, and South Africa, the jokes only last until noon, and someone who plays a trick after noon is called an “April Fool”. It is for this reason that newspapers in the U.K. that run a front page April fool only do so on the first (morning) edition. Elsewhere, such as in France, Ireland, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Russia, The Netherlands, Germany, Brazil, Canada, and the U.S., the jokes last all day. The earliest recorded association between 1st April and foolishness can be found in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales (1392). Many writers suggest that the restoration of the 1st of January as New Year’s Day in the 16th century was responsible for the creation of the holiday, but this theory does not explain earlier references.

International Tatting Day

International Tatting Day is celebrated on April 1st of each year. The staff at National Whatever Day were unable to locate the origin of International Tatting Day.

Tatting is a technique for handcrafting a particularly durable lace constructed by a series of knots and loops. Tatting can be used to make lace edging as well as doilies, collars, and other decorative pieces. The lace is formed by a pattern of rings and chains formed from a series of cow hitch, or half-hitch knots, called double stitches (ds), over a core thread. Gaps can be left between the stitches to form picots, which are used for practical construction as well as decorative effect.

Tatting dates to the early 19th century. The term for tatting in most European languages is derived from French frivolité, which refers to the purely decorative nature of the textiles produced by this technique. The technique was developed to imitate point lace.

My grandmother use to do tatting. I never was fortunate enough to learn and she had some beautiful work that was done.

Those that enjoy the craft of tatting make beautiful work of very sizes from pictures to rugs.
