Where has Etta been?

So many hosts, so many adventures!

Etta left her home with Niftyknits way back in November 2009, heading straight across the pond to MidnightCoiler. Or so we thought...she took a long time to arrive, and it turned out she'd taken the scenic route, being misdirected to Australia en route!

She arrived in rural Blounts Creek, Eastern NC late November and had a fun visit to the Aurora Fossil Museum.



Etta's next host was CrazyDaisiesDesigns. She had a great big family Thanksgiving in New Jersey and made a lifelong friend with little Tasha.



Next stop was GocksFrocks , who was kind enough to take Etta to New York to visit the one of a kind show!



By now it was nearly Christmas - and the lucky meerkat was on her way to California.
ZaftigDelights took Etta to the beach where she went surfing in her new bikini!



From California to Oregon - Etta had a painting course from Mozo and we discovered she was left handed.



Beadstylin welcomed Etta next in Kansas where she learnt about tornadoes and went on a date!



Next stop: Texas! Etta tried her hand at torching glass with LindenAvenueDesigns



Lindesigns and Lindenleafstudios were Etta's next hosts, she learnt to say "Y'all" and enjoyed a barbeque.



Back on the road to visit Lamaworks in Illinois, where she helped make some cards.




Etta arrived with By the Way in Indiana in February. Wearing her pretty new apron Etta assisted in cooking for 75 hungry people!



Back to New York next, to visit Valentinefiberarts and play in the snow.

Etta's final stop was in Maine, where the lucky meerkat had a professional photoshoot with Lori411 before heading home to Niftyknits.

In the next World Tour Update I will let you know details of the giveaway. Etta is looking for a new permanent home after her jet-setting adventures...and she isn't coming emptyhanded!
