Good morning, dear readers!
Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend- ours was great.
This is my favorite time of year. The temperatures are cooler and my Piney Woods are ablaze in glorious color. Jim and I took a number of walks in the woods and enjoyed the scenery.
As you can see from the image above, there was much in the way of artistic inspiration. Such lovely colors and textures to spark new tatting ideas!
After I composed the image collage, I went to the Valdani site and perused their wonderful pearl cottons. So many are perfect for this time of year. They perfectly reflect the colors in my Piney Woods that I love to use for my one of a kind tatted art. Here is my suggestion for those of you who have asked for artistic advise: Go out and look at the colors around you. Take some images with your digital camera or phone, then go to the Valdani website and see what thread colors strike your fancy. Let me know what colors particularly appeal to you! I really want to know!!!
Jim is off today & tomorrow so we will be doing various family activities. I do plan to get in a fair bit of tatting later, but right now Lily Fey is giving me one of her "looks" and Jim is sitting at the dining table very expectantly. Guess I'd better get Mr. Grumpy Britches his coffee and take Lily Fey on her run. Have a great day & until tomorrow~
