Beautiful Hand Dyed Threads

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.

You bet they are "yummie" - I love them all.... I will have to check out her place.

And the beads are adorable!

Isn't it wonderful to have the internet where we can shop for things, from the comfort of our own home, that we can't get locally. VBG

Hugs....Heather

Howdy Judy--

I always enjoy visiting your site so much! Such warm, pretty colors in your mail.
Keep up the inspiring work; I've shared your site with another friend, after trying miserably to explain to her about all the beautiful art that you create. I finally gave up and just shared with her your blog address lol :D

Unfortunately, no website for me.
The kids have been at me to create one, but I hardly seem to find the time to READ all the wonderful blogs out there, let alone post one! lol

You are an inspiration!
