I pulled out one of my boxes of hand-dyed threads today and wound the skein onto this thread winder. The back is dated '08. I guess I've had it a while! The thread is a beautiful navy blue and lime green, colors that do not show up well on the red bow. I've lost the tag to it, so I don't know for sure what size it is or the color name. I'm pretty sure it's size 40. Now I have to decide what I want to tat!
Two new shuttles arrived from Australia today. They are made by Elizabeth Lacey of happens2behandmade on Etsy. I haven't tried them out yet, but they are lovely!
I decided to take a break from the doily. I've just been making too many mistakes. Maybe a little time away from it will do me good. Instead, I worked on small projects today. The flower is short one ring. I ran out of thread on the shuttle, and rather than join more thread, I decided to leave it as it is. It's still pretty!
