Tatted Name

Here is my Christmas gift to our new granddaughter.  The alphabet is from "Tatting ABC's & 123's by Houstine Cooper and Handy Hands Inc."  Her name was tatted in size 20, the pink in DMC Cebelia and the salmon in Lizabeth.  It has been blocked.  It is ready to be framed and put up on her wall.

Took a break from hand dyeing samples to do a Christmas present which I will post in a couple of days (need to block first).  I also managed to tat a sample of a Christmas Tree Edging.  The pattern can be found here:  I tried to make it look like trees in snow with snow capped leaves.  I did not have total white beads so I used crystal looking ones.

Blue-Violet Samples HDT

Blue-violets were my next samples dyed.  Had a little trouble with a couple of the colors as to much of the blue came out leaving a little fushia.  Going to tweak the formula next time.  I like the colors.  I am planning on dying the very lightest in a larger skein.  I see snowflakes in my future with this light color (it just has a faint tint of color).
