In my last blog post I showed some tatted heart motifs done up in Zarina's new HDT colorways.
As I was tatting away I set my thread winder down on the coffee table to take a quick break. It landed right next to a ball of Lizbeth brand thread I happened to have out. I noticed that it seemed to coordinate very nicely quite by accident! It made me happy to see that an HDT all the way from Malaysia went well with a regular ball of thread I can purchase any old time! It was a "Happy Accident"! I then happened to find another ball of Lizbeth thread that went well with one of the other HDT's of Zarina's!
Well, OF COURSE I had to tat them up together!
Let me show you the results of these Happy Accidents!
If you would like to contact Zarina about purchasing her lovely hand dyed threads you can contact her by email at email@example.com
thread winder set next to a ball of Lizbeth
thread. It is "Country Turquoise Med" #661.
Since I am working on my second round of
The 25 Motif Challenge
I think I'll count these 2 motifs in
as I haven't done them before.
This is called "Mixed Bouquet" from her book
A Pattern Book of Tatting.
Motif #14 Mixed Bouquet
"By the Sea" HDT by Zarina.
The rings facing inward and all chains are
tatted with Lizbeth "Country Turquoise Med".
The butterfly threadwinders
were a lovely gift from Tattycat
last year! You can read more
about them here
Zarina's "Pink Rose" thread. Here it is on
the thread winder next to the Lizbeth
brand ball of thread called "Leaf Green Lt" color #683.
called "Looped Sprig" from the same book.
A Pattern Book of Tatting
is now out of print.
Motif #15 Looped Sprig
all rings are in "Pink Rose". Yes, it just so happened
that I lucked out that the "leaf rings" ended up
as the green portion of the "Pink Rose" colorway!
