Introducing two new colorways

"HYDRANGEA"

"Sue Hanson"



What else could I name a purple and lime combo tatting thread?
This is done in the new size 20 Silk tatting thread that I have aquired.
Actually Sue isn't the only tatter who has requested this color combo...yes you know who you are! But Sue is who I automatically think of when I think of this combination and I think she might get a chuckle out of this.

I think Hydrangeas are so lovely so it's quite natural that I would take to your thread name "Hydrangea". It is beautiful, Sherry.

Thanks TC. I have so much fun with the challenge of capturing the colors I see and putting them into thread.

The hydrangeas are lovely like TattingChic said and the thread is just as lovely. I'm sure Sue will be tickled with her namesake! Any plans on size 80 silk?

Thanks Lala,
So far I haven't been able to find size 80...only size 100. But I will keep looking for it since size 80 is my fav!

Tattycat said...

I might could try with 100 if you do dye some. I'm really enjoying tatting Clyde's doily in size 80!

Ahem...cough, cough, (clearing throat while searching mind for the right words)...Sherry, we knew this was bound to happen sooner or later...Ok, here's what it is: we've both done a thread batch called "Hydrangea"! Since mine was very early in my dyeing career, it's one I don't have the recipe written up for, so - (we tatting dyers are such gracious souls) - I'll let you have the rights to the name ;-D
LOL, Sherry - great minds do think alike!

LadyShuttleMaker aka MadMadPotter said...

LOL Marilee, does your "hydrangea" look the same too? I would love to see it. It was only a matter of time...:)

I think yours turned out better!
Have fun dyeing,
Marilee

Sherry, these are both so beautiful! I can hardly wait to see what everyone makes with it :)

Marilee,
You added blue into your "hyrdangea" you clever girl.

I would be really embarrased if mine looked just like yours.... yep great minds....
