"Tourmaline" on a cloudy November day

New hand dyed thread batch of "Tourmaline". Some of the dye colors that I used in the original batches I can no longer get, so I've had to substitute. The colors turned out pretty good, actually, but I had a hard time capturing them in photos because today was so cloudy and dark here. I used a fluorescent lamp as lighting for the Tourmaline photos.

Yesterday, I tatted the "Atom" in a bright peach color. It's some Flora brand thread I had laying around, and the color was so screamingly outrageous  I figured it would make a very cool atom! I paired it with Swarovski crystals in their "Hyacinth" orange and a peachy satin neck cord.
