I ordered some thread from Handy Hands. Beautiful stuff! Only size 80 as that's my favorite these days. Then I realized I can't tat jewelry with it because it's so fine. No problem.
A few of these Majestic threads. The colors are interesting. Not sure what I was thinking.
The rest are Lizbeth. I didn't want to take them out of the wrappers, so I just took an up close and cropped.
The pictures don't do the threads any justice.
I made up a little earring doodle.
Has to be starched, but with a little bit, it sticks really well.
And I tatted around a button for the first time. Very enjoyable! I just need to get some better buttons. Joann is probably the place to go. Unsurprisingly, they have a very limited collection of buttons at Walmart.
1/2" button and size 30 thread.
This is the beginning of a pattern from a little motif in the Handy Hands newsletter. I didn't go on because I had to add a repeat to make it work for me. The original pattern calls for 4 repeats.
Size 80 Summer Fun. Looks like a snow flake!
Now, to tat some more button snowflakes as gifts! More frilly though.
