This weekend I drank tea

 Do you remember a couple of weeks ago I mentioned I had bought several colors of Perfect Quilter thread?

Isdihara mentioned that she had some King Tut quilting thread and wondered if I would be interested in a thread exchange.  I thought it was a great idea!

Just a couple of days later I got her King Tut thread in the mail, in time for the Labor Day weekend.  A three day weekend and seven new threads to try - wow!  Thank you, Isdihara!


Would you like to see everything I got done?


This is a little piece I made with the "Baja" Perfect Quilter thread, just to see how it worked up.  It was easy to work with and amazingly I didn't have trouble with it tangling or knotting.  It tatted great!

And then.....






Yes, that was it.

I had a lot of time to tat this weekend but instead I sat around feeling miserable!  I had body aches, sore throat, and a terrible stuffy head. I had no motivation to do anything but sit around and drink hot green tea with honey.  Two days of a nasty cold.

I had such plans for the weekend - several tatting projects, some cleaning (I know, but sometimes it has to be done!) and maybe have dinner with our neighbors.  But none of that came to pass.  In fact, I haven't been able to try out any more of the threads yet!

It is September and the sunflowers are in full bloom.  These sunflowers - between seven and eight foot tall - are in my backyard. For all that they can be a pain when they are done blooming I love to see them every year.


They are so bright and, well, sunny!  


They didn't raise my spirits this weekend but now that I'm feeling a bit better they are.
