More thread and a destashed shuttle

I've been busy dyeing again!  Two batches again!
One is a not messy Grackle!  Which is really pretty and I think will tat up very nice:

And a Messy Jess!y called Purple Streak!  It's a light blue, teal mix with a streak of purple. :o)

Also, I've got some upsetting news.  Chris lost his job this week.  So, while I've already been destashing a lot of my items to help pay for Livi's birthday and to give us some extra cash when we go to the beach next week.  Now the money that comes from my destashing (and thread sales) will be the only money available to fund my girl's birthday and our beach trip.  
So, I'm making some hard decisions, and the first one is to part with this lovely Gr8 brother's wooden double bobbin shuttle.  It's gorgeous, but the money from it will help a lot.

Well, that's all for now.  We had a yard sale today, which actually went pretty well considering that it's a holiday weekend.  But, it means that I haven't had any tatting time!



  1. I'm sorry to hear about the job, that's a tough one!

  2. That is not easy...hope he is able to find another one quickly, though I know it won't likely happen before Birthday time. You are in my thoughts and prayers!

  3. Sorry to hear about the job issue. Good luck with selling the shuttle.
    Those are pretty colors.

  4. I hope Chris will find another job soon, and that you'll be able to sell enough to give Livi a splendid birthday celebration!

  5. I"m so sorry to read about Chris losing his job. I hope that another one becomes available soon. I hope all works out for your trip to the beach and Livi's birthday!

  6. Sorry about the job situation. I hope my recent order of some of your lovely threads will help.

    1. I helps a whole bunch, more than I can express. Thank you so much!

  7. Thank you everyone for the kind words! We will make it through. I'm going to have to find something for him to do around the house before he drives me crazy though. lol :o)

  8. So sorry to hear, we are finding it incredibly hard to make ends meet since my hubbies situation also, so I can definitely empathize. all my warmest wishes are with you and I will keep you in my special thoughts. smile and keep your family close and know, Chris will get another job soon, and Livi will love her birthday no matter what :X
