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.
