Rainbow Tree in Grapefruit Thread



Since Clyde has renamed my Christmas Tree to Rainbow Tree, I had the bright idea to tat a rainbow tree to go ON the rainbow tree! This is Sherry's hand dyed grapefruit thread. We can't grow grapefruit trees in Alabama, so I had to make us one.

This is the same pattern from the Be-stitched newsletter that I used for the green tree. I'm going to put beads on that one.

Tatting trees isn't as much fun as tatting snowflakes, so look for more snowflakes. At some point, I have to start tatting a doily with Marilee's Rhubarb Crisp thread. I am just trying to be sure I have the right pattern before I start tatting.

Laura, The grapefruit thread made an amazing tree to go on your rainbow tree. I am looking forward to the doily made from the rhubarb crisp thread.

It is yummy enough to eat, thanks to your thread Sherry. Yes Gina, plain green trees do get boring! I'm trying to change that.
