Flowers in thread, coming events

 Flower necklace in progress, with hand dyed threads. New batch of "Peace" thread will be listed by tomorrow. The pattern is in this book.
 Colors of hand dyed thread you may have missed, inspired by flowers.
I submitted a tatted jewelry set pattern to Belle Armoire Jewelry magazine, and have received a reply saying it will appear in the Winter issue, unless they decide to save it for a later issue.

My beginner level tatted earrings class proposal for the Bead&Button Show has been submitted, but I won't hear if it has been accepted for the show until November, since they receive many, many submissions. I do have another project in the works for the Bead&Button Show auction: a collaborative effort with a wire jewelry artist. She is making the wire parts of a series of earrings, and I am making the tatted parts. More on that later.

This coming Monday, August 11, will be the next meeting of the Greater Milwaukee Tatting Guild. Also, rumor has it that the Tollway Tatters will be meeting the following day. If so, I'll be bringing cake. Not saying why :-x

Hope the November class is still on, too. I have that on the calendar.

Good luck with your submissions. I think it's great that being published in such magazines brings tatting to a wider audience.

Lovely thread colours,
Hope all the classes you have coming up go well.
Is this an American magazine,

Wishing you the best on your submissions. The variegated green you are using on your necklace, I am assuming it is hand dyed by you? If so, will you be doing more in the future? I am looking for a nice dark to light for leaves on a brooch I would like to finish.

Thanks, everyone. I'll be teaching a class November 7-8 at Tatting Days in Indiana.
The magazine Belle Armoire Jewelry is published in USA. Actually I've had an article about tatting with polymer clay published in that magazine before, in Winter 2009.
The green thread is my hand dyed "Celery", and yes, I will be dyeing more of it soon.
