Just one skein...

...of Nectarine hand-dyed thread by Yarnplayer was used to make all of these goodies: One Spinning Wheel glass mat, two Stumpy bookmarks, and a length of Curds and Whey. What do you make with one skein of HDT?

The Spinning Wheel glass mat is in its new home under some of my gorgeous ceramic shuttles from LadyShuttleMaker. It may seem silly to hide such a beautiful piece of tatting under the shuttles, but I love picking up a shuttle and seeing that beautiful lace underneath. Besides, I have to put my tatting somewhere!

Speaking of LadyShuttleMaker, her new book arrived today! I've read through it, and I am very pleased with the detailed explanations of techniques. I'm really looking forward to trying this step-by-step process, but I'm afraid it will have to wait until school gets out. I need to really concentrate when learning something new.

Did you notice my two new shuttles from LaCossette? Like I needed another shuttle! She has a beautiful blue and white shuttle in her shop now called Little Hens. I'm trying very hard to resist!


  1. Nectarine is yummy!

  4. beautiful beautiful tatting. I understand how you'd enjoy having lace with your shuttles --

    Looking forward to trying it.

  5. I'm glad the book arrived so quickly. Thank you for the nice words. My husband is very impressed with your shuttle display. The nectarine thread is gorgeous!

  6. What a beautiful color, and as always, your tatting is impeccable!

  7. What a beautiful colour, you have made some beautiful items with it,


  8. Love that nectarine! I've never kept track of everything made with just one skein - what a nice collection :)

  9. Beautiful tatting in nectarine--lovely colour!

  10. I know I sound like a broken record, but I just can't keep up with you!

    It's amazing to see how many pieces you made from one of Yarnplayer's beautiful skeins! I still haven't used my HDT! Unfortunately I'm still not doing a lot of tatting, although we were demo-ing all weekend!

    That's a beautiful ceramic shuttle display! Sherry is so talented. I'll be interested in seeing what you make from Sherry's new book. It's a whole new concept! I'll be interested to see what you make from it.

    You''ll be busy this summer, as usual!

  11. Great tatting line! It's nice to see, how the same color comes out differently in different patterns!
    Wow what wonderful shuttles you have. My amount is still countable, but too less, of course!!

  12. Love that thread and your tatting!!! Beautiful way to display your shuttles. I don`t think it would have to same affect with tatting needles. Oh well. Thanks for sharing!!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
