A couple of weeks ago Sue Anna wrote and asked if I'd tried the Lizbeth threads to which I replied that I'd got a few - actually very few!! The problem is seeing before you buy so I tend not to buy. When I was at Palmetto, Tracey from The Lacemaker in Ohio had a fantastic range and I bought loads and loads for a couple of friends back in the UK but only three balls for myself!!!!
Why? Well - basically cause I couldn't make up my mind and I wanted to get theirs sorted first. Bearing in mind that I had to get them back to Cincinnati and then from a re-pack to the UK too. Not an easy task when you're with the Palmetto tatting 'lot' as they're fantastically generous too.
So I said yes please I'd love to see other colours and Sue Anna said she'd send me a few yards. Well when the packet arrived I was amazed at the size of it. It 'bulged at the seams'. When I opened it (by this time Nick was wondering what was going on) I was gobsmacked. You can see why below. Not only were there yards and yards of the threads BUT they're all wound onto thread holders. AND there's a skein of HDT too. It's Yarnplayer's nectarine. Yummy, scrummy.
I am SUCH a lucky old git. I'll be able to tat myself to sleep forever and ever. THANKS Sue Anna. I'm delighted with another gift from you.
