Snowflakes and Goodwill Finds

Here are my Goodwill finds.  The first is the Alien knit fabric.  Found this a couple of weeks ago.  It will make a nice top to wear at Tat Days this year.  The knit cro-sheen thread is my find yesterday.  Three full spools and one partial.  It does look a little dirty.  I am hoping that after washing it will come clean (will make a small motif to test out).

The snowflakes are from 24 Snowflakes in Tatting.  It is for the tat-along over in Craftree (two snowflakes a month).  A am a month behind but will catch up.  Snowflake no. 2 is made with size 20 Lizbeth, Blue Ice.  Snowflake no. 5 is Artiste embroidery floss from Hobby Lobby.  It is in the clearance bin for $0.15.  Can not pass a bargain. 

I have finished two 25 motif challenges.  I am now starting on my third.  These two snowflakes makes numbers 2 and 3 for this challenge.


  1. Just a suggestion for a possible help in cleaning that thread once it's tatted...maybe Liquid Clorox 2 could help. It's my favorite helpful cleaner.
    Love, love those snowflakes and the colors!!!!!!! :)

  2. You have a good eye for a bargain! Love those snowflakes.
