Autumn Leaf #8

I had to go back and tat one more of Sherry's Autumn Leaves. This is Marilee's thread "Autumn Treasure." I just knew it would be perfect for tatting leaves, and I was right!

This is the first time I have used Marilee's (Yarnplayer's) hand dyed thread, but it certainly won't be the last. I have 2 skeins of "Rhubarb Crisp" that I am going to use to tat a doily.

Now, back to snowflakes and other Christmas related endeavors.

Well, thanks everybody! I had a wonderful teacher for the josephine chain! I had made them before, but they never looked this good. Thanks for the tutorial Sherry. The encapsulation was tricky since the whole thing was tatted continuous thread method and I had no ends to hide. I had to attach 4 thicknesses of thread before I could make the stem! I love the thread too. I'm afraid I'll get spoiled to this hand dyed addiction.

Hi Laura, the leaf is very nice and you are right Marilee's thread is wonderful to work with but beware it is addictive and may cause one to want to tat in hand dyed colours all the time.
