I first "met" Gina through her blog Threads of A Tatting Goddess. And the first time we "spoke" was when she emailed to say I'd won in one of her giveaways. Although we never met in real person, Gina came across as a very generous and gracious tatter who unreservedly shared her knowledge, one who did not shy away from giving a tip, even if it wasn't about tatting! The tatting community has lost Gina to cancer but her endearing and inspirational ways will remain in our fond memories.
My deepest condolences to Gina's family.
