Stonehill Wine


"Stonehill Wine" has a grayish olive green which shades into a pale fuchsia, a brighter fuchsia, and finally a dark fuchsia/burgundy.

The tatted sample at left is from this new batch of hand dyed thread. I was trying a necklace pattern by Nina Libin that has beaded, reversing chains.The pattern is found here: http://www.georgiaseitz.com/classes2/libin.html

Saturday, May 24 I'll be going to Tollway Tatters! It's always a fun time when tatting friends can get together. I'll try to remember to take pictures there.

Enjoy your meet tomorrow. Lovely thread. Your tatting with it looks so intriguing that I'm off to follow your link.

You gather at the Hinsdale Oasis, right? May I ask when you are meeting tomorrow? I would love to join you!

Marilee Rockley said...

Julie, we'd love to have you join us! We meet at the Hinsdale Oasis, usually there by 10am or so, and stay for several hours.

Sue, sorry to hear that you already have plans, but maybe next time. Tollway Tatters is usually a "spur of the moment" decision, so there's no regular schedule. But, if you ever want to come to Milwaukee, the Greater Milwaukee Tatting Guild meets on the 2nd Monday of every month http://greatermilwaukeetattingguild.blogspot.com/
