Smile, today's a new day :o)

So, I felt the need to define "tat-ilicious" and since a picture is worth a thousand words.... I think this might come close to defining it... but doesn't quite get the job done :o)
THREAD, pretty designs, and SHUTTLES!

And that's not even touching the fact that, my special shuttles are all from tatters, the thread is all HDT, and not all my own. 
And sorry, the peanut knife is just too funny...
And on another note....
I've decided to join Umintsuru 's tat along... but you know me, I don't follow the rules... ever
I'm doing my flowers in Yarnplayer's Corsage


On a different subject....

 I've been wanting to try some natural dyeing.  I REALLY want to try dyeing thread with blackberries.  I've got the alum, a recipe, thread.... I just need blackberries.  The trouble is, everytime I buy blackberries, Livi finds them and gets all giddy.  She will sit and eat and entire container of blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, or strawberries like they are going out of style. :o)
Oh my... looking back:

I've always known my baby to love natural foods :o)

I actually made her baby food when she was a wee tot.  I'm pretty sure that teething thing in the top picture was filled with blackberries. I'd stuff them with fruit and they kept her very satisfied.  The bottom picture, she had been eating beets.  Beets, rutabega, and green beans were her favorite among favorites! 

Actually that bottom picture is making me wonder if trying beets wouldn't be a bad idea... 


  1. I love your photos! Though I have to admit I am more than a little jealous of your shuttle collection. My children are the same way about berries and such. Just yesterday my daughter was sneaky and pilfered a pint of blueberries I had earmarked for muffins. I can't wait to see your natural dye attempt!

  2. Your tat-a-long motifs look really nice!! :)

  4. Jessi,

    The pic of your shuttles & thread is soooooooooooo fabulous -- would you mind if I pinned it on PINTEREST? (giving you full rights to the pic, of course.)

  5. Awww, thanks Dawn. That would be delightful. I'm on Pinterest as well. It's fun!
