Motif #2 of 2010 & Tatting Tea Tuesday #1

Well, since I started the 25 Motif Challenge late it 2009, I'm going to start over for 2010. It just seemed odd to start a new year on motif #9, maybe even bad luck since 9 isn't a lucky number.

So this Tatting Tea Tuesday I'm showing you the 2nd hanky I did. It's the same clover edging done in Lizbeth sz 40 & the color is #117 Country Side which is antique turquoise, dark fern & dark blue medium. I think this one is for me.

I'm sooooo happy. The local shop that used to carry supplies for cross stitchers & embroiderers, has expanded to supplying threads to lacemakers. She now stocks Lizbeth theads in sz 20 & sz 40! Hobby Lobby here is still carrying the same 35 colors in sz 20 only. (sigh)

The Beatrice Potter tea cup was a door prize at the YaYa Sisterhood annual craft day. It's awfully pretty! It's one of my favorites. The cinnamon-orange tea is from a shop in Pike's Market in Seattle from our vaca there last summer. I've talked about that tea in previous TTT posts. It tastes like cinnamon candy. Yummmmmmmmmm!

Happy TTT to you all, & I'm relieved to know this tradition will continue for another year!

Not as relieved as I am to know that you and 35 others like you enjoy Tatting Tea Tuesday, Katie!

Your Beatrix Potter teacup is just beautiful, and it showcases your latest doily to perfection!

Thanks for joining in the TTT fun. I enjoy reading your posts and can't wait to see what you will be working on next!

Thanks Isdihara! The pleasure is definitely all mine. I love seeing what other TTT bloggers are working on - keeps me wanting to do more tatting!

TTT is the one day of the week that always holds a treat.
