I'm Back!

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything.  Mainly that's because I was unable to make things due to a bad wrist injury.  It's taken 5 months so far to heal and it still bothers me at moments on a daily basis.  However the wrist is about 90% healed and I'm able to work again, at a slower pace, but at least I'm able to create :-)

I also was one of the lucky winners of Handy Hands contests for their new threads.  They selected the name I suggested for their new color Pink Marble, and they also liked the 'marble' idea so much they also called the purple version Purple Marble.  They wonderfully gave me 2 sets of winning, which means I was able to select ** 50 ** balls of thread.  I got all the new colors and all the ones I've been wanting to get and a few others as well, in all the sizes I wanted.  Needless to say I'm in Thread Heaven right now !!

Of course I had to give these new threads a try, but because of the wrist couldn't work on them too long.  So I took Kirsti's Stumpy design and with a bit of finagaling made a pendant and matching pair of earrings with the new Green Coral Sea thread.

Motif # C3-5



I liked the way it worked up, however the colors were brighter than I thought.  I had thought they had a more muted, washed out tone.  It did work up beautifully though.

Both of these are available in my Tatted Delights Etsy Shop - http://TattedDelights.etsy.com

I hope to have more things made soon.  I'm currently working on a couple of baby sweaters and have a new baby afghan design I want to try.  I also have a thread crochet bunny in the works from before the injury that I'm hoping to finish up soon.

Thanks! The pictures don't really show the size difference but the earrings are smaller than the pendant. I think it worked up nicely in this design too.
