Yesterday I took some time to surf the web for a pattern of tatted, hens and chicks. I tried to use the needle, but didn't like to "cut off the ball thread." That really didn't appeal to me. So I found one decent shuttle to work with. I wish www.handyhands.com would get the new ones in. I'm drooling here. Originally, I thought that I would purchase 2 but I changed my mind, and I'll get 4!
So I've been playing with this pattern. I am using a teal color # 686 which is a size 20. I'm not sure how fine I want to go, yet!
So I pulled out an Lizbeth orange color 695 in size 40. The cream is by DMC perle 12 and DMC perle 8, so I can determine how it's gonna look.
Also on the web were a few articles of how to make your own hanky by punching holes with a "wing" needle. I may try this later. The pre-holed hanky is over $5.00 for one. I have three of these that I've never used. So we'll see how it goes.
Hope you are all having a wonderful....until later
