I was going to share a photo of the brand new ball of thread that my cat tore apart last night. I'm tempted to try to work out the tangle of purple thread but I keep flashing back to an unsuccessful rescue operation I attempted years ago.

These days I can salvage what's left of the ball and order a new ball of purple lizbeth thread for around $5 (not including shipping). Thank God for Barbara Foster who has saved us from such desperate acts with her Lizbeth thread that is easily purchased from many sources.
On another note, I am teaching again this year at the Finger lakes tatting seminar. This time it is a 3 hour
