Sue's Blues II

 New batch of hand dyed thread is listed in my Etsy shop! I call it "Sue's Blues II" Named for a flute-playing friend of mine, and "II" because I've done it before, but I think it may be slightly different. I haven't found any of the old batch, so I don't know.
I've started a pair of earrings with it. Most of the blue shades in this batch tend to be "warm" blues. Sort of like fading blue jeans, but not exactly. The pictures are as close as I could get to the actual colors. Oh, and the earring is from my own "Quadrille" pattern.

Just chillin'

Teaching the Tatting Basics class at Bead&Button Show.

A pattern is emerging on the weaving loom.

 No tatting to show on this blog just now, but I've been teaching tatting. Still to come this week is the "Meet the Teachers" event at Bead&Button where I'll have a table display, and another class to teach on June 11.
This is not tatting, but it is lace, and it's given me an idea. I think it would be a fun thing to do on a t-shirt. Cut the shoulder and sleeve apart, finish the raw edges, then insert a piece of tatted lace. I've gotten as far as the idea and buying a t-shirt. Run with this if you want! You'll be done before me :) I'm feeling a bit tired, so just chillin' for now.
