Hmmmm



There are some people living in tat land who think I've got a good sense of colour.  I'm now going to prove them wrong!!!!

I took these threads on holiday with me - roses (an HDT that I was given) and a plain thread which is probably a Coats.  Both  are size 80.  I made this hanky edging which I FORCED myself to sew onto the hanky yesterday.  

I love the threads (particularly roses) but I'm not sure they show up this pattern very well.  The plain pink is lovely with the HDT but it's tooooo close in colour.  The pattern?  Well it's not on my site yet but may eventually get there!!!

I reckon I'm going to keep this hanky for myself.  The first one in 53 years of tatting that I've ever made and have kept.  


Hang on - I've got probably two in my exhibition stuff but wouldn't dream of using those or giving them away.  This is going to be my treat to ME!!!  Happy UN-birthday, old git!

  3. It must be hanky time! The color/pattern combo may not have turned out to your liking, but I think it's stunning! I love the contrast between the white and the vivid colors!

  4. I like the way this colorway turned out. Too bad it wasn't all one thread that just happened to have a majority of the deep pink in it. Just a touch of yellow is perfect - like the center of a flower. Good for you - keeping it for yourself!

  12. I like the colors in that edging -- and the edging. It's a bit like looking at raspberry and orange sherbet mixed. Yummy!
