"Parakeet"


More vibrant than pastel, these bright greens to medium blue are similar to the coloring of some parakeets. Color idea suggested by the president of the Lighthouse Lacers guild, Sue Anna.

My start on "Boomerang" earrings from the new HDT is seen in the photo above. The boomerang pattern is found in "Marilee's Beaded Tatting Finery" book. Georgia Seitz wrote a very nice review at BellaOnline Tatting. I feel so honored!

By the way, if anyone wants to learn how to shuttle tat in the scenic vacation area of Mineral Point, WI area on May 31st, there are still openings in my Beginning Shuttle Tatting Workshop at Shake Rag Alley, but the class is filling up fast. Register on the Shake Rag Alley website.

these colors are so vibrant and I never asked what do you use as a base thread?

Marilee Rockley said...

Thanks. For base threads, I use Lizbeth for sizes 3, 10, 20, and 40. I use DMC Cordonnet Special for sizes 30, 50, and 80. The embroidery floss is DMC.
