Some of the blogs that I'm reading use the most amazing thread colours in their tatting and some of them dye their own threads.
They kept talking about HDT and I didn't know what it was. Obviously I have found out now.
HDT - Hand Dyed Thread.
I got my first order of HDT from Jess at Tat-ilicious and I love it.
The light colour (1 skein and 1 bobbin) is Whoopsie #40.
The dark colour (1 skein and 1 bobbin) is Grackle Mess #40 and is a lot more interesting looking in real life - it has blues and purples kind of like abalone shell colouring.
The large bobbin at the bottom is Dark Rainbow #20. It was the last of that colourway which is why I only bought the one.
I am getting soooooooooooo many ideas for things that I would like to do from all the blogs and pins that I am connected to.
I have put in another overseas order for bobbins and other accessories but the AUS$ is falling in value so instead of paying less than US$ I'm starting to pay more. Oh well, it was good while it lasted!
Unfortunately my headache has now gone on for more than two weeks and I have had to cancel over $600 worth of maths tutoring students - which means no more internet spending for a while.
