Opening the box!!!!

OK, now the world will know what I chose (Sally's are in the photo too).  Isn't that THE most wonderful site you've ever seen?  Lizbeth has a strange effect on me.

Normally when I buy something new (clothes, shoes or whatever) I keep them 'for best'.  I often wear (say, a coat) for ages without taking the shop label off - just in case.  I can keep things for months waiting for it to be 'for best' time and then eventually the penny drops and I remember that we two OG's don't 'do' best ever!!!  We lead a very quiet life and don't go anywhere that requires 'best'.

The point of this is that in the past I used to get a thread and do the same.  Not with Lizbeth, though.  I love the fact that each ball is wrapped in it's own wee bag.  BUT I can never wait to rip it's 'clothes' off!!!  Is there something kinky about me in my declining years?!?!?

Next job?  Another tidying of the tatting cupboard so I can get them all in!!!!

Now which one will I use first - and what for?  The answer, my friends is blowing in the wind!!!!!

Ooo .... I am so jealous of you good fortune. What ever it is that you tat, brain cell #3 may have to work overtime to utilise all these.

What a very exciting parcel! What's the colour of the ball of thread on the left-hand side of the third row from the top? - I like it!

Lovely colors! I know what I would choose to tat with first... blue! Congratulations on all your new goodies!

I'll have a look later for you, Maureen. I need to find proper homes for them all so will see if I can find that one then.

This is like receiving a treasure box filled with jewels! I'm still amazed that Lizbeth thread is being manufactured and am curious to know the details of how Barbara Foster made it happen! How lucky for US that she did! And this contest is amazing, too. They have so many color choices now that I can't imagine coming up with new ones! But what a great incentive to do so!

Congratulations on creating a new colorway and winning this prize!

Yes Jane, I believe you are likely kinky, he he. Anyone who can tat and create like you, just hast to be. Very happy to see you have your new stash. You'll have a blast.
