Day one of the "Festival de la Palabra" (Festival of the Word)

I got an invitation for an International fair of writers celebrated this week in PR. Only 5 artisans are participating and it's very exiting! Today was the 1st day. Well, actually, last night was the 1st but I couldn't go at night. So this is my official 1st day. :-)

Because is an event about writers and books they ask me to bring bookmarks. So I spent the last couple of weeks tatting bookmarks. Made around 30. Today I sold 7. May be is not a lot but for me is a triumph! This is my first time in an event like this.

The event is from 10 am to 10 pm in an antique square building with a huge plaza in the center. It was constructed as a jail in the Spanish Colonial Era. A very pretty building. Tomorrow, hopefully, will post some pics. I forgot the camera in the luggage with the tattings on the trunk of mom's car. But is secure...

My feet hurt and are swollen, my back is killing me and I'm so tire I can't sleep but I'm happy.
