I wish I was at Palmetto Tat Days, aka The Honey Comb Charm

It's here! Palmetto Tat Days 2019 starts today!  
Every year I send a kit and pattern down for the grab bags they give to each lucky attendee.  This year I found these awesome hexagon shaped woodies that made me think of Mary Kay Ash's quote about the Bumble Bee and its unlikely flight.  I think it goes well with the theme of Tatting Tale Tails.  
The pattern is posted below so those of us who aren't attending can still share in the fun.  PLUS I was too lazy to print off the pattern and fold it up into the kits so everyone getting the kit is being directed here.  So we can all share in the fun.  An ice drop gem fits perfectly into the pattern to replace the hexagon shaped woody.  So no need to search all over for the woody.  The link to download the pattern is below and I will add it to the Ice Drop Addicts group on Facebook so you have a couple places to pick up the pattern.
