Thank You Ross Point

It is located on the north side of the Spokane River, a quiet spot with tall trees and a large conference center.  The room we stayed was in a nearby cabin with a  common living/kitchen  area along with six rooms each with its own bathrooms.  Hubby and I had a King Size bed, dresser, table and chairs. There was also an outdoor table under a veranda where you could sit and read past dark.  Inside the common room there were rocking chairs and recliners to relax in.

The rooms were very clean and our stay was most comfortable.   The drive to Ross Point was seven and a half hours with one border crossing, one train derailment, three stretches of construction, a detour and time change.  I had tatted a few hearts to give to the border guards and perhaps that is why we had no issues at the border this time.

Oh did I forget to mention the food.  Yum, it was all fantastic.  I couldn't eat some of the offerings (allergies)  but I never felt I didn't have enough and there were alternative choices.

Ross Point was the location for the Shuttlebirds 21st Annual Tatting Workshop, A Flurry of Flakes. I had a wonderful time, taking six courses and finishing one project.  It was a great weekend.  So nice to see old friends and make some new ones too.

I encourage all tatters to get together with others if you can.  Even a small local group will increase your skill level.

    1. So nice to meet you and your family too. I forgot to mention we also crossed one mountain range. I was home in time to cook dinner.
