Lucky Find

Just a very quick post.  Got home last night and was doing some tidying today when I found a shuttle had fallen down behind my desk…  I pick it up and what does the bobbin happen to contain?  Yes, a full bobbin's worth of cream Lizbeth, just the one I was needing to complete my doily!

Hardly worth a post you may say but I was so pleased.  

I ended up leaving the little blue crochet bag behind to be completed when I'm next there on holiday.  I wasn't happy enough with it and instead have ordered some nylon thread to try another bag with.  I also found another interesting crochet stitch I want to try - that's one fun thing about crochet, there are so many different stitches to try!

Best wishes,


  1. Yay! Good things happen to good people :-)

  2. I'm so glad you found another shuttle filled with the proper thread!

  3. That is so great that you found more of the thread you need and it's even already on a shuttle! How cool is that??

  4. I am so happy for you, finding that shuttle :) and I think it will be fun to see another crochet stitch from you, will be watching !

    1. Just had a quick try Madtatter and it's not working out at the moment! I frustratingly do not understand how the pattern is written but hopefully I'll figure it out eventually.

  5. I don't need to read books at all, there are so many climaxes and cliff hangers with tatting and following blogs ha ha, I do hope it is just the excitement of finding the thread unless it is a slightly different size thread ???

  6. How fortuitous and wonderful! Yay for you!

  7. Great find, well done and at least you won't have to buy a new ball that might have been slightly different colour shade.

  8. Definitely worth a post! We all have similar situations and it's great to hear one that comes out well!! :)
