Olde Rose and Peaches 'n Onions



 "Olde Rose" and "Peaches 'n Onions" hand dyed thread batches have been added to my Etsy shop. I dyed and listed them both at the same time, since they go so well together.

Examples of where I used these threads together include the tatted earrings and necklace shown here. Both designs are original; the earring pattern I still need to write up, but the necklace is my "Duchess" pattern which appears in "Boutique Tatting".

By the way, I just started microblogging on Tumblr. Not that I really needed yet another venue on the Internet, but with Tumblr I'll have short posts that link back to this blog or my Etsy shop. Other folks on Tumblr can re-blog my posts and they will still link to my site, so, it's a great way for artists to get their work seen by people who might not otherwise see it.
  February 24 edit: I have deleted my Tumblr account. Tumblr is not a family-friendly site and there is a lot of trash there.
