True Colours

...sings Cyndi Lauper. Well, my true palette on this Renulek is now cream and ecru! There's a story here.

On the last post,  a fatal error was discovered by Michelle, thank goodness! Thankfully, she commented and I quickly realized I could not fix the problems. At the same time,  I admitted to myself that the red thread was beginning to make me angry - go figure; I'm a Taurus, after all.

So, I am keeping the beads, even adding more than I had initially envisioned, but the red is gone, replaced by cream.

Recently, I prefer thread that is not variegated and I lean toward softer, but not pastel, hues. Here is what now tickles my fancy - or rather un-fancy:

Interestingly, I have become most fond of these two shuttles with their softer, gentler colours. Don't they seem perfect for this project?

Doesn't take much to thrill a tatter's heart!


  1. They are beautiful shuttles, a perfect fit for your cream and ecru.

  2. Wow, this is just so elegant and gorgeous!
    And the shuttles are lovely too!

  3. That is going to look beautiful and elegant when finished.
    Gorgeous shuttles, love the colours on them
    Love to Mr G

  4. Ooh, I like it. More subtle without the red.

  5. Very beautiful and somehow it is amazing to think how pretty shuttles makes one feel special when tatting I completely agree hugs and have great day from Carollyn

  6. I like these colours too. It looks very elegant, just what Michelle said. Perfect!!!
    Just wanted to let you know that I do visit your blog and say hello.
    Tsuru is wondering if she could see another photo of the handsome Mr G.
