Today I received a two wee packages in the mail. The first one I torn open was the one with all these very lovely handed dyed threads. I bought them from "Lady Shuttle Maker" etsy shop from Boise Idaho.
Now why would I buy tatting threads when I do not tat? LOL. Well, I could not resist them when I saw all these lovely hand dyed colors. I bought several different sizes so I could determine which ones would be best to use in embroidery. After looking at them now I can easily see using them all in my embroidery projects. Isn't all these colors just yummie looking? The Lady Shuttle Maker calls them such dreamy names too.
From the top to bottom they are called, Hydrangea (size 10) Coral Rose ( size 60) Raspberry Mousse, Peach Pandora in (size 20) These threads are all 100% Pure Silk. The next set of threads are Size 80 DMC 6 cord threads. Autumn Medley, Old Saint Nick and Sue Hanson. I love them all. I really need to learn tatting because I think tatting motif would look so very lovely on my crazy projects. Maybe this will motivate me to get moving on this challenge.vbg
Oh, yes my next package was some more lovely beads that I bought from the "T&T Trading Co" in Grand Ledge Michigan. At the bottom of the photo are some Zuni Bears that I really like allot. The very small blue beads are called Italian Chevron Beads which I was told they to not make anymore. The pinks beads are truly beautiful. They have itched roses on them and they will definitely go on The Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams which is still in progress.
