Ugly! nuntium duodeduocesimum

Yuck!  My sister gave me some thread that someone she knew got as a free sample.  It's the Lizbeth Twirlz stuff and I thought I might be able to use it for and edging but I made one ring of the edging, said NOPE and then made a butterfly.  It's size 10 which feels a bit like rope anyway.


So- anyone want a free sample of Twirlz, size 10?  Not that I've sold it very well.  But it could be viewed as patriotic- maybe.  No color number listed.

Off to find something pretty....

Yellow! nuntium centesimum nonagesimum et septimum

I have made snowflakes all fall, probably since October and even though I admire snowflakes in other colors, I find that for selling, these are what are preferred.  So on December 18th I started in YELLOW, a present for my dear alter ego, Ginny.  She liked the present for my friend's wedding in the summer so I thought I would do something similar for Christmas for her.  She is a bright and cheery person so this seemed perfect.  I used Robin's edging again although it took me a while to get into the rhythm of it.

It's Lizbeth and size 20 but the baggie and the label disappeared somewhere.  Color?  Honey?
I decided to use the invisible thread again and the pinning takes longer than the sewing.
But it's well worth the time, rather than hand-sewing- ugh!!!!!

I still don't know why it amazes me that my friends who don't tat would like tatting.  Silly, I know.

Next?  Maybe pink!
