I've been busy elsewhere and haven't been tatting until late last night, to empty a shuttle and unwind a bit. This is a pendant from Lyn Morton's Tatted Jewelry. I didn't put beads on it and it turned out I didn't even tat it in the right order but it all worked out. Most of the jewelry in the book looks very similar but I suspect it's the individual's tatting of it that produces the variations. Thread color, beads, what is used where. It was easy to make.

I ordered some free floss from Threads of Rosace which I saw posted on Suztats' blog last week. It arrived on Monday, very fast. I'll probably embroider with it but I could tat too. The free offer is still in effect as of today. They are promoting a new line of embroidery floss. It feels very soft and smooth but I won't know how it acts until I try it.

Just a minor diversion.....playing with the thread at


  1. Love the colour in the little motif... so happy and springlike!

    I have great trouble tatting with embroidery thread (using two or three strands) so I am curious to see what you do with this... The colours are lovely.

    Thanks so much for this post!!

    I just went and made my color choices!

    Can't wait to try it out!

  3. Hey Gina, I got my thread, too, but it seems as though one doesn't get a choice regarding the colours.......I chose three greens and received a red, green and looks as though you received the same too. Mind you, I'm not complaining, because it's so nice to receive something free, and nice to try out a new embroidery thread before purchasing. I think it's lovely and soft, and I'm looking forward to testing it out and seeing how strong it is. Hugs, and thanks for the link.

  4. Very pretty thread and oh you have been playing again - it is fun though!

  5. Suz, I did get the colors I ordered (it's actually a peach, green and ivory but that might depend on your monitor's resolution. I do seem to remember that the place to check which color you wanted was not where you first expected. The order confirmed the colors I picked and I also got an email listing the colors.

  6. Hey Gina, thanks for your response. I must have done it wrong, then, because my confirmation was for 3 threads but no colours were listed. Don't I feel silly, now. teehee. Oh, well. Free is free. It'll be used regardless of the colour.

    Have a great day! hugs from Suz

  7. The wonderful colorful design just reminded me that spring is on the way! Thanks for the comment on my blog! Pearl
