A little delay

We had a little delay on our way home from our cruise.  Our flight had a stop over in Denver that was only supposed to be a few hours.  It turned into more than 24 hours due to no flight crew for our plane.  They said the crew was delayed due to some issue on the east coast.  Great!  The airline did put us up at a really nice hotel and gave us some vouchers for food.  I would have preferred staying at a Comfort in or something instead.  Absolutely nothing was free – neither the wi-fi nor the breakfast.  And the vouchers they gave us only covered not quite two meals and we needed three.
They did have lovely lounge areas, which was nice as we had to check out of our room by 11:00 a.m. and we didn’t want to take the shuttle back to the airport until 1:00 p.m.

During the wait at both the hotel and the airport I was able to get a lot of tatting done (surprise, right?)

This one I mostly like though I’m not too sure of the tail end.  I didn’t get a picture of this until just before I gave it away to our church organist for her retirement.

I made it again with both ends the same and no tail.  I think I like this better.  I think this pattern in a plain thread will really show the pattern better than the Lizbeth Caribbean I made it in, but this was the thread I had with me.
The delay was a good thing in that I got a lot of tatting done.  I would rather have been home and tatting.
