"Christmas in July" Tatting Exchange: Part 2


"Click to enlarge"
Yay! My partner Susan S. from Spokane WA. (I am so homesick for the Pacific Northwest), received her tatting exchange package so now I can share what I sent.

Remember this? For those who guessed that it's a pin..you were right. It can be worn just about any ol' where you'd wanna stick it. LOL! It was tatted in size 20, hand dyed tatting thread "Hydrangea". This was made from I kit that I purchased from Patti Duff at Shuttlebirds.

I made a set of picot gauges using the ol' credit card. I use these all the time in my own tatting.

This is a tatting decorated container for storing whatever you like to put in it.

Sue requested help with her snowflake collection. So here is a snowflake with glass beads, tatted in size 80 hand dyed tatting thread "Weeping Cherry". This pattern is "Star Shaped Snowflake" From "Tatted Snowflakes" by Vida Sunderman, p31

A bag o' beads, 20 yards of hand dyed tatting silk in "Rain Forest" Green, and a tin of chocolates which I hope didn't melt on the way from S. Korea to Spokane.


This exchange was a lot of fun and I may consider doing another in the future.

What fun gifts you gave. I like the container. If I had received that I would put a little hole in the top for thread to come out of and use it for a tatting thread holder so the ball of thread doesn't get dirty while tatting. Chocolate looks good right about now...yummy!
