And Then There Were None
All the Valdani has been sampled. This blue and yellow one is my least favourite as these two colours do not appeal to me. Also, this thread was so much softer than than the others; I feel that Sis made a mistake in the brand, but there is no label to be certain. It is made in Romania however, as is Valdani thread. Anyone want a sample of this? I have that huge spool that I do not think I will use very often. Send me an emial if you want some.
What next? I am off to Tim Hortons for a coffee, as I am off work today and I have to retrieve a crochet hook I left there a few days ago, Luckily I called and an eagle-eyed employee spotted the errant hook under a table. It is the little beading tool, so I am relieved I did not lose it as the 05's are hard to come by, except by mail, and postage is always very expensive to Canada.
Who out there in Tat-land has thought about doing the Etsy-thing? About selling tatting for profit? About having enough design sense to give it a go? Well, I do not wear jewellery, do not make jewellery and in fact have little interest in it other than in the shapes and colours, so why, I ask you, do I keep thinking about starting an Etsy account? Is this a phase we all go through after a few years of tatting history? Will this pass?
