The IOLI Convention are calling for Tatters

This 56th Annual Convention will be held on July 25th to August 1st this year in Los Angeles California. You can read all about the convention from the Freeway Lace Guild site, who are the host this year.

No, I am not attending this convention, though I wish I could. But I will be there, not in body but in spirit.

This years theme is Golden Nuggets of Lace. And to celebrate this theme, the Convention needs flowers, lots of flowers. And they wil be using the August Birthday Flower of the Month from the 2008 year's fundraiser, Flowers of Lace Put a Smile on Your Face.

And guess who designed the August Birthday Flower .... Me!

Please go to the online tatting class site to read more about it and to get the pattern of the flower. There is also a link there if you want to order the book, Flowers of Lace Put a Smile on Your Face. There are many other lovely flower patterns in there for each month of the year.
