Rachel's Gift

It seems ages since I put anything on my blog, the hand is still bad and very painful, so this is another one handed post.
Today its a lovely sunny day here in somerset,   what a change from the 12th December to the 13th January we only had one fine day,  it just rained and rained,  my garden is just one sodden mess and its going to take many more days/weeks of sunshine before it looks anything like a garden.
This is gift is from Rachel (xstchntat) from intatters, she did a competition last year on intatters which I won, and this is the prize which I received this last week.  The balls of thread are Lizbeth threads,  which is great as I don't have any of these colours,   the threads on the cards are a mixture of hand dye and Lizbeth threads.   The best item of all is the beautiful wood shuttle made by Grizzly Mountain Arts,  I don't have any wooden shuttles so this is a real treat, I cant wait to try it out.  The beautiful cross she made is a wow piece in no 8o thread although it could even be finer than 80.  All in all it was a wonderful prize.
Rachel has been very ill for sometime, so I can't thank her enough for this wonderful prize.  Just got to get my hand better so I can start tatting again.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend.
Until we meet again take care

  6. Sorry to hear your hand is still sore. Lovely to get the parcel to cheer you up, though it must be a bit frustrating that you can't put it to immediate use. Something to look forward to. Glad to hear you've had some sunshine - we still have too much sunshine and not enough rain.
