More HDT

Here is the latest HDT I have made.  The hot pink will go to Tat Days with me.  It will be used with white to make an edging for a baby bonnet (our first grandchild - a girl - in late October).  The teal turned out better than the previous try (see an older blog post below).  The grape turned out great!  The Lilac is a little darker than I wanted.  I will try making it a little lighter or maybe some periwinkle.  Want to use the lighter with thgrape to make a HuckleBear (a pattern by Gina Butler).  The walnut was suppose to be a dark rust orange.  Turned out nice.  It is also going to Tat Days for some late night tatting.

Craft Tote

Just finished my craft tote.  It will be used mostly for my tatting to carry with me where ever I go.  It might also hold some knitting.  It's first official use will be at Tat Days in September.  It will be good to carry all supplies at once instead of in several different things.  It has 4 pockets on the outside and 6 on the inside.  It is also large enough to carry my pattern books of at least 8.5 x 11 inches.  Might think of spraying with waterseal so I can carry it around in wet weather!

Butterflies for Tat Days

Been busy the last couple of days practicing the tatted butterflies for the tat off at Tat Days.  Just trying to empty shuttles of thread so I can refill them for classes I will be taking.  Also, have almost completed my third element for the TAT course.  Also, all HDT is complete for the navigators I want to tat.  These will be given to coworkers who will be filling in while I am on vacation later this year (actually better get started on these as well).
