Hello to all readers!
Today is a little cooler than we would like it to be. It seemed to "snap" that quick, into fall mode. Don't get me wrong, it really feels wonderful. I must confess that I had to put the heat on and get out more cats to put on the bed :) Our dog didn't really like that idea, since he is "king" of the house and everywhere else. LOL
And, it's football day, all --- day--- long :) I'm not doing so well in this respect , my teams are not winning. Heh
Soooooo, yesterday, the FedEx dropped off a package AND my thread arrived from Handy Hands.
When I first opened the FedEx package, I was excited. Looking the hankies over, hmmmmmm. Granted, the hankies were really nice - remember a "case" of them. But, there was not really a selection. One embroidery set, was embroidered on 14 hankies - the rest were a little different. I guess it doesn't matter though,when you change the pattern and thread.
I really liked the Lizbeth thread, though - 20 weight. I would have never picked the colors to put them together. So I just had to experiment with them. I love how it shades for the flowers. I probably will use this pattern quite a lot. After I got done making some samples, I continued on the blue one. It has a ways to go. But I'm determined to finish it. I thought that I would sew it on by hand using my invisible thread. Will see how this looks when I get to it.
So here is my little tatting box, with supplies for tatting.
Now, do you know, do I block the lace when it's done? Then sew it down? Or, wet the hankie with the edging and steam it or what? I guess I'll figure it out.
And, after our dinner and in between the games, I'll be tatting....
Until later....have a great day!
