I've been busy elsewhere and haven't been tatting until late last night, to empty a shuttle and unwind a bit. This is a pendant from Lyn Morton's Tatted Jewelry. I didn't put beads on it and it turned out I didn't even tat it in the right order but it all worked out. Most of the jewelry in the book looks very similar but I suspect it's the individual's tatting of it that produces the variations. Thread color, beads, what is used where. It was easy to make.
I ordered some free floss from Threads of Rosace which I saw posted on Suztats' blog last week. It arrived on Monday, very fast. I'll probably embroider with it but I could tat too. The free offer is still in effect as of today. They are promoting a new line of embroidery floss. It feels very soft and smooth but I won't know how it acts until I try it.
Just a minor diversion.....playing with the thread at Pixlr.com.
