After bouncing ideas around, I decided to take Judy's advice and host a "Harvest" event. So, I went into my atelier and proceeded to "harvest" more items from my stashes that need a new home. Here is what is up for grabs this month:
Thread, fabric, tatting needles & other goodies...OH MY!
The thread haul consists of: 1 ball size 16 Finca pearl cotton color #1301, 1 ball size 8 Domino pearl cotton color #606, & 7 balls of Majestic size 80 tatting cotton in colors 800, 854, 852, 853, 849, 848, & 846.
I have also included a few blue and purple baroque pearls.
The lucky winner will also receive a selection of 2 1/2 " quilting cotton fabric strips (perfect for making small yoyos) and 6 size 9 (or there about- these are long size 10 beading needles with the sharp tip snipped off) tatting needles.
An assortment of 16 Catholic religious cards is included. I am not a Catholic, but love the artwork on these cards that are apparantly given out at funerals. (My Catholic friends, if you have any insight about these cards, please let me know more about them. Thanks!) From time to time, I happen upon a lot of them and cannot resist. These are lovely with tatted edgings around them. I slip them in Christmas cards and frame them for gifts.

Dear readers, I wish you a wonderful weekend filled with tatting adventures. I will return Monday with new works to share and perhaps a new pattern or two next week! Until then~
