Tatted Jewelry

These items did not get shipped in time for Palmerto Tatters craft shows.  Plan B - they will be coming with me to Tat Days in September.

I decided almost at last moment to teach this year.  I thought outside the box again this year and came up with a nice beginner pattern.  It features using a SSSR - single shuttle split ring - as the last last ring to avoid hiding ends.  Registration is now open.  More info is found here.

I will be busy in August dyeing thread to sell at Tat Days.  I don't dye large quantities as I am still learning.  I will be doing a couple color ways that were new last year plus a few new ones for this year.  Will try and post pic when all done.

Tatting might be hit and miss for a few weeks.  I have had trigger thumb for over a year.  Last month I had an incident of tingling fingers.  Come to find out I now have carpal tunnel as well.  Surgery is scheduled for this week as thumb is still bothering me.  He will hopefully fix both issues.  The bright side is no rehab and I am to start using hand immediately, needlework is not off limits just no heavy lifting.
