Pretty Threads!!

Yesterday I got a package in the mail from Gina the Tatting Goddess!  About a month ago, Gina had a giveaway of some threads she had received from someone whose mother was a tatter.  You can check out the whole story here.  I really appreciated that Gina explained where the threads came from- it gives it history. 

The colours are sooo pretty!  And the thread is very fine- Gina said it is probably about size 70.  I have not tatted anything with that fine of thread yet, but it should be fun and very beautiful!  The balls are like little candies.

And in true Tatting Tea Tuesday fashion, Gina also included a card with a teacup on it and some raspberry chocolate. The chocolate was a little melted from its travels, so it is in my freezer at the moment (but not for long!)

So in summary, I would like to say Thank You Gina for such generosity in sharing this thread and now its time for me to tat some more!  :)


  1. Congratulations on your win! Tatting with fine threads is very rewarding. I look forward to seeing what you create with them!

  2. Hi!
    Thanks for your comments on tat-ology. : )

    Sock edgings - I stretch the sock around an Altoids tin or something that size (for a 1-2 year old) and then sew the edging on. I use the tin to know the length of tatting I will use. When the tatting is sewn onto the stretched out sock and then the tin is removed, the sock sort of ruffles, leaving lots of room to fit over chubby little feet! The trick is to find the right size container to use for the stretching and sewing..
