I am taking a little break from the Monster Doily to tat a few little things on the bucket list.
First, I have been playing with embroidery floss and Jane's Emotitats. I have noticed a difference in the brand of floss. Both were made with three threads to give me a size 20 equivalent. The small one is Hobby Lobby brand and the bigger one is DMC. I have made another with the HL brand but I used 4 strands instead. It came out much better.
The green Kudzu bear was made with hand-dyed by me thread. I have the link to the bear on a previous post.
I am keeping the bears (so far named Hucklebeary-Purple, Kudzu-Green, Bluebeary-Blue) as extras in by tatting bag. These are great to give to kids where ever we are - who are interested in what I am doing. I am going to be keeping some of the Emotitats as well. I can give these to the bigger kids/adults.
I have completed another project, it is being stiffened and will be another post later this week.
