Tatting Thread Journal
I decided to "update" my journal as I move into a new phase of trying to select "permanent" colorways to go into the Etsy shop.
I had previously been keeping notes in a regular notebook that has spills of dyes and waterspots all over it. I thought that I should make a nice reference journal with recipes, photos and samples of my HDT's.
So this is what I came up with. I decorated it with handmade paper and hand dyed tatted bits that I let bleed into the paper.
The butterfly is my orginal "Honor" pattern.
I am working on a new series of dyes and am trying to finish up the next tatting book.
These projects are soooooo time consuming, but you should be seeing a lot coming up in this here tatting blog o' mine.
