Why? can I not just say something and go through with it?? I said I was going to do a test dye and what did I do? 5 skeins of size 40 and 5 of size 20. What happened... it's really beautiful, but not what I was looking for.
Why did I do this though?? Well, Livi was outside playing, so I took the cones and the swift outside to wind up some skeins. One of Livi little friends came over and asked what I was doing and asked if she could help. I love help, even if its not all together productive. Just the company is nice. :o)
So, Kayla is probably 8 or 9 years old and she was asking about what I was going to do with the string. She wanted to watch me dye some. So, she asked her mom if she could come over in the backyard and play with Livi while I dyed some thread.
She thought it was fascinating, and I thought it was fun.

This would make for a lovely late summer / autumn colorway. Don't you think?
I'll call this one... Torch Lily Wannabee.... no just kidding
I have no idea... it's definitely a limited supply color so if you want one, just tell me. Maybe we can work out a barter system for them.
I would put them in the shop, but I don't want someone to get hooked on it the way it is, and then want more... and then when I get it the way I want it, .... anyway you can use your imagination to finish that thought process if you want lol.
So, just leave a message or email me if you want to trade something for one of these. I have four 50 yard skeins of size 40 (I used one of them) and five 50 yard skeins of size 20.
What kinds of things will I accept? I don't know lol Maybe you have a craft outside of tatting... that would be a good place to start :o)
A list of things that I adore:
colors pink and purple
also bold colors
crocheted dolls/ animals
funny/ quirky items
^the dorkier the better
Diet Dr. Pepper (seriously... it borders on being a problem)
stamps (rubber stamps not mailing stamps)
PEARL EX POWDERS
small cosmetic sized bags
beads (of all kinds)
**UPDATE** Can't believe I left off these items:
And Livi is a huge fan of Snoopy. (Why Snoopy? I don't know, but she just loves to anything with Snoopy on it) that and Angry Birds which I really do not understand.
So.... any takers?? Perfect way to acquire some lovely HDT while not having to dish out the cash :o)
