"Celery" greens

 It has been a busy week, having fun with friends at guild meetings, trying to design a tatted connector for a friend's wire jewelry collaboration project (no success yet on that), and helping dear husband Jan set up his own Etsy shop. He's just getting started with selling digital photos at his Etsy shop. So, if you have time, do browse through what he's got so far, and favorite the pictures that you like.

I hand dyed a new batch of "Celery" thread, which people have been asking for. It's quite a bright shaded green, like leaves in sunshine. Now listed in my Etsy shop.

Have you seen the new Tatting Central website? It's nicely organized with links to guilds, suppliers, patterns, tutorials, and designers. So far, the designer section features Jane Eborall, Linda Davies, Tat-ology, TotusMel, and me!

Lovely green thread,
I followed your link on to tatting patterns central I found they had one of my patterns in the free section, I never was asked if they could list it.

Just love those greens, but also have my eye on the pansy one, are you going to tat days? Followed the link to Tatting Central and looking good, the pop-a-bobbins shuttles are there and I have been asked if my patterns can be shared, a lot of work has gone into it.

Thanks for posting about the celery thread and the link to Tatting Patterns. Placing my order when I am done here. Will check out the link after that.

I love all of your thread colors, but this one is especially lovely!

Pssst... look for Tollway Tatters to be added to Tatting Central!

Thanks for the feedback!

Margaret, I think there is a contact form on the Tatting Central website if there are any concerns. They did ask for permission from me before posting any of my things.

Sally, no, I am not able to attend the Palmetto Tat Days this year, but I will be teaching at the Thread Corner's Tatting Days in Indiana on November 7th and 8th.

Hi Marilee,

I love those colors! Green is one of my favorites!

Margaret - I'm so sorry. If you will contact me which one it is, I will gladly remove it!!

I've been trying to contact everyone to get their permission before posting - so I'm not sure what happened there.

Again, I apologize deeply! Please contact me!

Margaret, I have gone ahead and removed a couple links in question until we can resolve this (I sent you an email). I also noticed you referenced tatting pattern central - which is a different site...

Marilee, I took a look at Jan's Etsy page - wow! Those photos are beautiful!
