My big belly, New HDT's and a Catalog for you!


Here is my nearly 7 month belly photo. I am happy to report that as of today I am 6 pounds up from my pre-pregnancy weight. I am still suffering from almost constant nausea but I haven't actually been throwing up as much. With being able to keep more food in and having my physical activities greatly restricted, I expect that I will continue to put on weight. I am loving my basketball belly!

"WINTER HAZE"





"DIABLO"




"AMERICANA"



Added some new colorways to my Hand Dyed Tatting threads arsenal.
Speaking of which, I have finally finished one of my long term projects, and that is an HDT Catalog. It's fabulous! I currently have 69 different colorways to choose from. All of which include sizes 100, 80, 50, 20 in cotton and size 20 in %100 Pure Silk.

Slowly but surely. Love the belly photo, :). Hoping that it will be better and better from now on.

Great idea to have the catalogue up.

Hay your belly looks very wonderful! Yes, it's super to hear that you are gaining some wieght final. Just remember the it won't be long until your baby will be seeing her feet & you will be thrilled to see your's at the sametime.
Your colors are very nice too. Plus you have a catolog now. Cool!

Becky said...

Yay! You are doing great to have gained 6 pounds! I'm glad that things are staying down better! (I actually only gained 10 pounds with my 4th pregnancy with no complications during it. I gained less and less with each pregnancy!)

So great to see this post! Wonderful photo!

And the thread catalog is mind-boggling. I simply can't fathom how you can offer so many choices in so many thread sizes. Awesome!

Ridgewoman said...

awwwwww love the bump!

The catalog is a GREAT idea…I have another suggestion for you; could you please add a little tag (on the skein) that tells me the color of the skein? It would be such a help, as I always forget the name of the color of the thread. (sigh)…

I want to print out the catalog colors, is that okay?
xxx grams...

LadyShuttleMaker aka MadMadPotter said...

Grams,
Print Away!!!
The name tag is something I used to do until it became waaaayyy too time consuming. That is why I include an invoice of the picture and name of the thread purchased.

congrats Sherry, I am glad you are able to gain a few pounds, I don't think you were any too heavy to begin with, so gaining a few is good for you and Picadilly.
is the thumbs up the proud papa?
glad to see you out and about.
thanks for the catalog, I have saved it to my computer.
have a really great weekend.

Bonnie said...

Always good to hear from you.

I like Pircadilly's bump and the thumbs up :-)

Glad to see your feeling well enough to be out and about.

Josie Passell said...

So pleased to see you and bump out and about, the weight gain is also good. Keep the good work. The catalogue of threads looks lovely.
Thank you for the grids. Now I have my new black ink,I can print them off.

Lily said...

Thanks for the pics on the baby bump... she's so tiny yet!!

And...

Thanks for the catalog! you have some nice color combos - I'll have to stop by your store ;-)

connie said...

Oh and I appreciate the catalog,I'm sure it was labor intensive. It does help me keep track of what I have and what's available. I didn't know I could replace my Shades of Grey that I used most of.
I'm not sure I really wanted to know that actually,Thanks I think,
LOL

What a splendid catalog! I printed mine out right away.

As for Lizbeth threads splitting -- I must say I am always surprised when I read of another tatter who suffers this trouble. It never happens to me.

Here is how I unpick (retro tat, tonk, whatever): I use a sewing pin to loosen and unpick each half of the double stitch.

While I adore the picks on the ends of my shuttles, I am a creature of habit and instinctively reach for the sewing pin whenever unpicking is required.
