Well, this is a day that comes around only once every four years. I have spend the day doing nothing constructive (well almost). I have been looking through my patterns and threads and discovered that I do not have any fall colors. A search of our local Hobby Lobby store turned up the only offering in tatting threads:
Guess I will need to turn to Handy Hands for my favorite thread providers and place an order for some fall colors in smaller sizes. So in my cart right now are the following Lizbeth colors: Falling Leaves, Vineyard Harvest, Autumn Spice, Autumn Apple Pie and Leaf Swirl.
I am looking forward to receiving these threads so that I can make some fall colored Tea Roses for my big fall project. I have also received some paper mache' eggs that I had placed on order last week. It was a really quick turn around for placing the order. So my next debate with myself is whether or not to use them as is or to paint them colors to put tatting over them. I have several border patterns picked out to try on them.
So, enough chatter for now. I need to get on with my tatting.
