This is going to be my relaxation project for a while. Probably for a few weeks as I'll always continue to have 'other things' on the go too.
Now, I'm NOT going to tell you what it is or where it comes from. I'm going to challenge you all to tell me which pattern it is. There may well be a prize at the end - something I've made probably OR a tatting leaflet or more. We'll see. The pattern does have a name, by the way and it isn't my design!!!
I will tell you two things about it:-
1. It's going to be large.
2. It's going to be made with HWT - hand wound thread.
The plain colours of this project are reels of quilting thread that I found in a sewing shop in Cincinnati more years ago than I dare remember (see pictures below)!!! The family was shopping in Krogers (think it was that store) when I sneaked off to the shop nearby. Two or so years later on a return visit to Cincinnati I managed to sneak back there for more colours!!! I did manage to sneak in the King Tut with the plain pink for this part!
Talk about value for money - doubt these reels will ever run out and I've used them loads of times for HWT.
