What a year! It seems like I haven't had time to do anything other than work. I did get the M finished before Christmas, but didn't have time to sew it down, so it will now be a birthday present (Feb 15). The sweatshirt has turned into a tee shirt (I couldn't find any sweatshirts that didn't have anything printed on them).
I have found sometime to work with my exchange threads again. I also have a new scanner, so my scans are much clearer than before.
These next 2 threads were sent to me by Abby Calson of Rock Island, Washington.
The heart pattern is "Small Tatted Heart" by Betsy Evans.
The thread is Oren Bayan, Size 50, color 710.
The 2nd thread Abby sent me is Altin Basak, Size 50, color 3053. The pattern is from the January 1956 Workbasket.
Speaking of thread exchanges, I have started a new one. I'm not going to post the details here since this an open blog (I hope you all understand). The details have been posted to the assorted tatting email lists.
