Inspired by a "Peace" rose

Pink to peach to very pale yellow, the "Peace" batch of hand dyed thread (and a few skeins of laceweight yarn) is now dry, photographed, and in my Etsy shop. I improvised lighting for the photos with a florescent light shown through a frosted plastic wastebasket, since the daylight around here has been so cloudy and dark - we've had more snow.

Another winner will receive one of my original "Wondrous Window" tatted pendants;

Third winner will receive a "big and little" set of two skeins "Tigereye" hand dyed - a size 3 pearl cotton and a size 100 cordonnet.

Stardate 1002.06 - experiments

NEW original designs!
It's a mystery where design ideas come from - usually I just play around until something happens that I like. For those who have been after me to get going on another book, well... I made it as far as making a new folder on my computer - one small step at a time, you know.

More "Stardate" has been listed in my Etsy shop, in several different types of thread as well as the laceweight wool/silk blend yarn.
