T-t-t-tattin along with a Shadow visiter & giftings

I finally got around to blocking, stiffening and mounting the "star of david" in a hoop. It looks more like a snowflake to me. I really need a scanner. We'll have to see what payday brings next week. Target has a nice HP printer, scanner, copier for $80- that I have had my eyes on for a while & the ink replacements are reasonable for it. I cannot even find the color catridge for our hand-me-down HP printer anymore. We are stuck with black only.

The Angel & Leaves pattern that I have been trying to rewrite is just too fiddly for my inexperience. This one is getting put aside for later. It kept curving around & I don't want that. I wonder if it is the thread (Omega matalics)?

I finally got started on the Floral bookmark that I saw on etatters & liked so much. I tried doing it with needle tatting but that proved to be too much of a pain-in-the-ass for color work. Blah! This one I am doing in Classic crochet thread (black) and Omega thread (antique gold/yellow).

Last but not least is Shadow Kitty. I was tattin away one sunny, wintery day last week when I looked over to the patio and saw a Shadow that resembled a kitty. Must be the protector of our patio doors. :) Can you see the Shadow Kitty?

A friend of mine gave me a whole skien of Cherry Tree Hill Oceania arn in the Sugar Maple color way over the weekend. I tis a beautiful yarn that has a string of matallic gold running through it. I have been wanting that for so long but it was just too much for my budget! I am one lucky gal! Swing CoatI totally want to knit the Swing long Coat out of it!

Until next time...

  1. Hi Rexenne,

    I was watching your basic spinning video and would like to know where you bought your ply guage you keep on your wheel?

  2. Oh yeah I suppose I should have mentioned that aye? I bought mine at Susan's Fiber Shop (susansfibershop.com). Was the video okay? You didn't mention how well you liked or disliked it.

  3. The videos are great. I have been spinning and weaving for a few years, 1999 I think not sure. It is always good to watch and listen to other spinners to learn new tricks and ideas. Like the gauge card, I had no idea it was out there. There are only a few spinners here, 5 or so, and most of them are new to spinning. I just love the internet, don't know what I would do without it.


Thanks for the feedback! Most comments will be published right away except for you pathetic spammers who's messages will never see the light of day. If you are offended by having to fill one a "prove you are not a robot" form, my goodness...chill out! It takes two seconds to do and saves me a ton spam to have to filter through and it takes two seconds, MAX. If you are that easily offended, maybe you should simply not comment, and seek some counseling.
