Remembering Gina Brummett

As many of you know, Gina, also known as TattingGoddess, lost her battle with lung cancer recently. She was a very sweet lady.
Here are a few photos I have to share of her.
This is a photo of her doing something she loved.. tatting. This was taken at the Lafayette Lacers Lace Day. She introduced me the the Lace Day events. I so love going, and loved seeing her there every time.
Another Lace day..Gina brought the tatted Sock Monkey I had made for her.
She collected sock monkeys, so I made her a little 3D tatted one.
Here is a photo of a little get together we had. We ate at Pepe's in Frankfort, and our Leprechauns joined us! We had several little get togethers in the past. Always chatting, sharing our newest tatted items,  gifting each other with little things. I will always remember them with a smile.
Here is a little amulet bag tatted by Gina. She entered it as a raffle prize at a Lace Day, and I was very lucky to win it. I use it constantly as a holder for my mp3 player.

Among other things, she was a talented tatter, teacher, and friend. I never saw her without a smile on her face. The tatting world has lost a family member. We will all miss her blog posts, comments, and patterns.  Those of us who knew her personally, will miss her for different reasons.

My condolences go out to her family. Take some comfort in knowing she will always be remembered as long as there are tatters in the world.

Rest in Peace Gina.

I have a purple version of that pattern from Gina. Its been hanging in my bathroom. That's a great idea to use it to hold your MP3 player.
