Size 3 Came in Yesterday!

My daughter finished a scarf she was making me, it is so soft made with bamboo yarn.
I was thinking of sewing these to it but then again maybe not.
this type of shuttle is normally to large for me work, but great for this size thread!
love the colors of thread and the size It's like working big crayons, instead of color pencils. 

This red is done with one shuttle full of size 3, and little from ball thread.  The orange crush is done with a way smaller amount of thread, I filled the starlit shuttle 3/4 full to start.
the beads are hug E seed beads.  You have to place them one by one, using glue and twisting end of the thread tight and letting it dry small, so you can slide the beads on.
I totally had to wing the pattern wanted it to look like Tathavens daisy she will be making her pattern known soon.I hope!
used the button like others (Jame E) but sewed the beads on for more coverage of beads!

  3. It is a very good idea to use 3 to decorate a woolen scarf. I can't work with 3 nor with10 . It hurts my hands. I am most comfortable with 40-80

  4. I know what you mean, this does seem to slide well, or better than other brands. I was thinking of posting some really good hand stretches that helps so well I don't wear a any more compression gloves. I found the stretches on You tube!

  5. Lovely bright flowers! I like the beads, worth the effort involved in incorporating them.

  6. Thankyou for your comment on the leaves, I stiffen the whole piece of fabric first (twice) to make it really stiff and then cut out the leaves.
    My tatting has taken a back seat for the moment, can't do it all. lol

  7. The flowers are so pretty! The beads look like just the right size to use with that size 3 thread, and nice texture and colors.

  9. HI again, I took a look at that book on Amazon and it had such good reviews, I have ordered one for myself. Thanks for the tip.
    I've almost finished the Autumn block now and can't wait to get back to my scrumble wall hanging, its been hanging on the wall waiting to get finished.
    You can see the beginnings of it if you click on Scrumbles in the list.
    Very blustery here today, no damage for us so far but cats aren't venturing out. lol
