Look what my Tatting Angel from Portugal sent. Thank you very much!!! I am always interested in seeing the rest of the world even if it is from pictures.
According to legend, a pilgrim on his way to Santiago de Compostela was condemned to death by hanging at his pass through Barcelos, having been unjustly accused of stealing some object of value. Shortly before the sentence was carried out, the condemned man commended his soul to Saint James. In answer to his prayers, the roast cockerel the judge in charge of the case was about to eat stood up and started to sing. This is the origin of the famed Barceló’s cockerel, universal symbol of Portugal.
Maria lives outside of Cascais.
The best of all is Maria’s tatting!! Isn’t it beautiful…Many Thanks

I have sent an easter card and a small motif and pattern to my s/t/a
I have also received my feb, march, and april pkgs.
The first photo is for Feb. and is of a 10x8" bag, suitable for carrying a supply of tatting needs. it also includes a postcard of sri lanka.
The 2nd is of another "ring of tatters" newsletter. and also a keyring that could contain a picture or maybe even a tatted motif.
Many thanks to my secret tatting angel for these gifts. I appreciate it all.
