Another tatting tea Tuesday
This Tuesday's tea is green. Just simple, green tea from Japan. There isn't even any English on the package. About once or twice a year, some very good friends of mine send me a few packets of the most wonderful Sencha (I think that's how you spell it). It's actually the same colour as the tatting thread.
It wasn't as difficult to sew the Tatting onto it's permanent home as I had feared. I thought it would take me about the same amount of time to sew as it did to tat. But lucky for me, I found these needles in my Grandmother's sewing kit. It's gold plated near the eye of the needle which somehow makes it slide smoothly through the fabric instead of getting all grumpy. Very nice. I wish they still made needles like this.
Anyway, here it is on my soon-to-be everyday bag. I sewed this a couple of years ago to replace my current bag. But I never quite perfected it. I still have to take up the strap a bit but now that it's not so boring, I feel far more motivated to finish it.
