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.
