nuntium centesimum sexagesimum - donated thread

Happy Bluebird and I get to tat together once a month along with some others.  We started "Twin Cities Tatters" a number of years ago.  For a few years, we were the only ones but now we have a healthy (free) membership and often have to pull over extra chairs to accommodate everyone.  What a joy it is to have others to help, puzzle with and guide.
Last time, she showed up with some donated threads.  Maybe you are like she is, everyone knows that she tats so when someone passes away, the families think to give it her.  (I hope my stash would end up with someone so kind.)
HB brought some of this thread last time and I saw something I'd never seen.  I'm not a pink gal for the most part but this one grabbed my heart. The variegation is so subtle and lovely.  This one is for a baby girl.
Size 40?  Thread- who knows?


  1. Yes, when I saw that I thought what a gentle color change and looks good with the cross, I know, I hope my stuff finds it's way to someone who will love it as much as I.

  2. It is a lovely colorway, and made into a lovely cross. It looks like a soft thread. I, too, hope that my stash is given to those that would appreciate it.

  3. Very pretty! If we get up to MN this Christmas, I hope we can get together. I have to learn how you make your tassels!

    1. I would love that! Let me know when you do!

  4. Lovely colour way and beautiful cross. Very pretty

  5. Beautiful use of that gentle color - so perfect for a baby.


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
