Isn't this fabulous!
This is a Lenore English pattern and it is tatted in #30, Zwicky silk - no longer available. Krystle thinks it is from Switzerland. As you can see from the other picture, she has also sent me a whole roll of it! Yahoo! Lucky me!
Thank you, so much Krystle; I am going to enjoy using that silk. It is really beautiful when tatted up - the pic does not do it justice. The texture is marvellous, and I love this pattern, as it is demonstrates the power of the understated.
Dr .Von Threadmore's contribution to my first tatting exchange:
Yup. This was the first exchange for me. I was hesitant at first, but it was with Krystle and I was sort of comfortable sending her my tatting, as I feel as if I have gotten to know her over the past year. I'm pretty shy at first, believe it or not!
Not only silk in the package, but HDT - Krystle must have managed to pilfer some from the good Doctor's basement laboratory; look at that rich "Earthy Rainbow"! One skein of it is already loaded onto my shuttles and I am contemplating the perfect pattern.
