I have been tatting or attempting to tat I should say things have just been getting me down lately so I am not in a mood for it I start to tat and then mess up but I think I am getting myself out of my funk or atleast trying my darndest too... Today I took alot and I do mean ALOT of photos more than I have for awhile, it felt good.
I got an amazing package in the mail last week one day I think it was last week anyways... Georgia Seitz and I decided to barter isnt it fun ;) She wanted all my books on disk for a price BUT I said would you like to trade a shuttle AND / OR set of picot gauges. She agreed and instead of just A shuttle and A set of gauges I got all this.................... *WOW* how generous I am still in awe over it all... Thanks again Georgia
Hmmmmmmmmmm??? Wander what these will be for? and NO they arent painted.
One of my new shuttle ideas, PRETTY huh?
And last I am tatting with this magnificent thread that was hand spun for me by Raven she wanted a custom color of thread for a fair project. We made a trade, she hand spun it just for me :) Its pure silk hand spun thread and allthough very soft its wonderful to work with and its not white its more of a cream color I love it and I may have to experiment with dying it too ;) I believe she told me it was a 3ply but its a very VERY strong thread... I just cant imaing all the time and effort that goes in to hand spinning I had (at one point) wanted to try it but I am already into so many different things I think seriously my husband would try to kill me with my tatting needles and shuttles or smother me with the thread or drown me in the dye if I got into anything else LOL
Well I am off to do who knows what... Night
