Hello everyone! The past week did not go well. It was one of those weeks that make me dislike the human race. Yes, it was really that bad. I expected the bad mood to follow me through the weekend, but Saturday turned into such a beautiful day that I forgot about my bad mood. The weather was nearly 80 degrees, not a cloud in the sky and yard sales galore. Aah, heaven! In honor of Saturday, here is Lindsay Rogers Swallowtail Butterfly from Tatting Miscellany. For the wings, I used size 80 'Brilliant Sunset' by Yarnplayer and black for the body, approx 2-3/4".
Of course yesterday had to be an absolutely dreary day. I know April showers bring May flowers, but I don't want to wait! While I was waiting, I sat down for some tea with Martha Ess' teapot, 'Antique Rose'. Once again, I used one of Yarnplayer's HDT colorways. This time it was Blue Pansy, in size 80 once again. So cute!
The teapot is approximately 3" tall, the creamer and sugar bowl are 1-7/8", and the teacup is a bit bigger than a quarter, or 1-1/8". For those who are HDT nuts like myself, the entire set was done with less than one skein of size 80 HDT. Obviously that will change depending on the size of thread you use.
Lastly, but certainly not least, I have been the recipient of another award. Thank you TattingChic for the Friends Award:
