HDT - The Stash

First of all, let me say that those who I sent the threads out to have received their cards. Congrats to all! Sorry if my comments on the posts didn't go through -- we've been having problems with our internet for the past two weeks and I'm lucky to even get my e-mail to load! Hopefully the problem is fixed this time. Oh the joys of living in the middle of nowhere! ^^

Anyway, I thought I'd share some pictures of "Hearts Desire," as tatted by Beelizabeth:

Isn't it beautiful? This was tatted in Lizbeth that I had dyed and had a whoopsie moment. I think it turned out really well! Unfortunately, every time I have tried to do this pattern I always mess up on one of the first two chains. Either there aren't enough picots or too many! Thank-you, Beelizabeth, for letting me post this on my blog. Again, it is beautiful!

I've also managed to make a new card in the past few days:

This time I've used stickers that I caught on sell at Michaels. Aren't they lovely?

Also, Isdahara, I am planning on selling these. Not sure what the pricing is going to be just yet, or if they will be sold individually or in packs of 5. It's still in the works, and I'll keep everyone posted! ^^

I was trolling around Hobby Lobby yesterday, when I stumbled upon a happy find. I have been looking for a plastic container to put all my HDT in that had been wound onto floss holders. I finally found one that had many compartments. It also has enough room to house my floss winder!

As you can see, I've almost got it packed full. Not all of these are my own HDTs.. The bottom row of threads are all Lizbeth colors except for the two in the lower right. Those are from the thread exchange from this past Christmas! (I've still got two more to wind, and all will be well!) Also, the three above the exchange threads are what's left of the HDT I bought from LadyShuttleMaker. The colors there are Shades of Gray (20), Icicle (20), and Autumn Medley (80). I really need to get to using these soon!

A few months ago, I asked how everyone kept their beads. After weighing the choices and seeing the stora
These aren't all of my beads -- I have salvaged some from some cheap jewlery that I bought from a clearance store. After finding these, I found a better container, but that will be shared at a later time.

I have some tatting to share, but that will come tomorrow. I want them to finish blocking before I post! ^^

I had been putting off making these for awhile, and then decided in the last few days to work on them again.

Remember her? Or how about..

Well, I made some more for the give away (so yes, lades.. You each got one of the following)




The Twins
There was only one that I didn't get a picture of, and to tell who got it could ruin the surprise. And yes, they all have anime blue hair! I mispaced my paper for the black hair, and used my blue instead. I think they look cuter with blue, but anyway..

Hope each of you love your new threads!

Thread Giveaway

Since I had more people interested in my threads than I thought, I decided to do a drawing for them. I have four skeins of Lizbeth tread that I'm giving away, and then decided to give away a few more from what I have ready. The four that were chosen will get one each of my Lizbeth, everyone else will get some from my DMC or Aunt Lydia blends.

So, those who are receiving Lizbeth are:

Jane Eborall
Sharon D.

I'm e-mailing everyone who commented, and will be sending out the threads by Wednesday, weather permitting. They're calling for snow again, and at the first sign of a flake the entire city shuts down!

If your e-mail isn't on your profile pages, please send me an e-mail (with your address) to:

If you missed out this time, don't fret! I am planning a larger give away in April, so more to come on that!

Happy Tatting! ^^
