Should I use it?

I was showing Mom my hankie collection this morning, you know the hankies I've been meaning to tat edgings for? After I sat down in my chair, I spied a ball of size 80 Lizbeth, Rainbow Taffy. It looked perfect, and I was very excited to start tatting an edging for it!


As I progressed with the pattern, I got to thinking that maybe the bright blue light was too different from the blue embroidered on the hankie. The other colors look great, but what about the blue?


What do you think? Should I use this thread for this hankie, or should I try a different color? The edging won't go to waste. I have a peach colored hankie that looks great with this thread!

  1. Personally, I think it looks great with this hankie! You could always do another edging in Rainbow Taffy for the peach-colored hankie!

  3. The thread colors look perfect for this hanky! It's okay that the blue is slightly different from the blue in the embroidery. Several shades of the same color add more richness to the finished effect.

  4. I didn't notice the difference in color until you put the lace next to the embroidery. Since they won't be next to each other, it shouldn't be a problem! :) I say use it! :)

  6. I like it as is. Very colorful + I think compliments the hanky well.

  7. I say go with your instincts. I think the rainbow taffy matches quite well even though the blue in the rainbow taffy looks more turquoise. Alternatively you could go with an edging in blue that matches the blue on the hanky.

  8. I think it looks perfect! Of course you're seeing it in natural light. But from here it looks great on that beautiful hanky!

    I am still in awe of all of you who choose size 80 thread for your projects!

  9. I personally think it is a wonderful choice, I think the slight difference in the color is fine, and the reason is, precisely because there ARE so many different colors to begin with. In my opinion, it is a perfect thread colorway for this hanky, and I myself can't wait to see it finished :)

    I think the thread colours go very well with the embroidery on the hanky!

  11. I think it's perfect, I didn't think the blue is that different to make any difference.

  17. I think the colours are just right for the hanky! Quite often, a slightly different shade of a colour can enhance more than a perfect match. It will be gorgeous!

  18. I think it looks like a sky blue, and blue skies go with everything!

  19. Wow! That thread looks like it was made just for that hankie! I agree with the others - use it - it will be gorgeous :) I always have to remember that colors don't have to match exactly. They are prettiest when they "blend".
