Hi all.

Does anyone else love Instagram? As a visual person I absolutely adore it! I've lost count of how many fantastic artists and makers I've found on there.

Feel free to follow me @tataniarosa

I'm currently working my way through my own challenge inspired by The 100 Day Project: #100DaysofWIPsChallenge for work in progress pieces. I've just reached Day 44.

I've also started running a Follow Friday each week to promote yourself and find other creative people.

I look forward to seeing you on there,

I'm Back!

Hi all. 

I'm back from a blogging break with a fresh look. The background is my 'Rose Garden' digital artwork, available on Redbubble, Society6 and Zazzle.

I've currently working on an exciting project but that's for another time 😉.

Yet More Hand Dyed Thread

Good evening all. I hope the weather is nice where you are. It's been hot here but I must admit it would be nice if it cooled down a bit as it is difficult to work in this heat.

I don't have much to share this evening apart from an update on my hand dyed thread. On Thursday I painted some more size 20 thread in new colours. I seem to be painting this size more than any other at the moment; I suppose it's because I love tatting with this thickness. Do you have a favourite thread thickness? I'm hoping to paint more sizes soon to add to the 20 and 10.

So the skeins have now dried and been twisted up. I wasn't sure how they would turn out and even though they are a tad more muted that I was hoping, I still think they look great. Keep an eye on my Instagram page for a sneak peek soon and, once I've finished working on some large orders, I'll photograph and list them on Etsy.

Have a nice day,

More Hand Dyed Thread

Hi all.

Here's my latest hand dyed thread:

This one is called 'Bubblegum Violets' and is available in size 10 cotton thread on Etsy. I've also created it in size 20 and will have that one listed soon. I really love this colour combination.

I'm currently photographing my new skeins, including this tropical inspired one:

I hope to list a couple by Friday. Can't wait to show you all!

Have a nice day / evening.

My Second Announcement and A Sale

Hi all,

I can now reveal what I've been up to for these last few weeks:

Hand dyed thread!

I finally started experimenting this year and I absolutely love the process. So far I have four skeins ready and this above is the first. It was dip dyed to create this ombre effect. Each one is this style will be unique due to how it is created, so I've decided to number them.

It is available here.

~Milestone and a SALE!~

I've just reached 1500 sales on Etsy! Thank you for all your support, it means a lot to me. To celebrate I'm running a 15% OFF SALE in my tatting Etsy shop.

The prices have already been marked down and it will end at 3pm EDT / 8pm BST on Sunday 4th June.
