Tea and Tatting again

Well, it’s Tatting Tea Tuesday again. I made up a cup of tea and sat back to tat.
Today I’m working on coasters for my daughter’s birthday. She chose two colors and I’m trying to decide if I can use them together, or should just use one or the other. The tatting is going to be attached to denim from old jeans.
She chose this Lizbeth thread in green variegated and antique red in size 20. I like them both,
I just don’t know if I like them both together. Make it all in the green, all in the red, or together?

I think the pattern will work. If I leave it like this it will be about 4 inches (about 10cm) across. I’m planning on making four to six of them – it will depend on how many I get done by her birthday!

Now, if I can just make up my mind how I want to do the colors….

  1. Thank you so much for joining in the fun on Tatting Tea Tuesday! I really look forward to reading your posts.

    Do you find that Tuesday comes around so fast now that summer is here? It has been sneaking up on me.

    Please do share a photo of the finished coasters before the Big Day. 🙂

  2. Both Together! I agree with LadyShuttleMaker aka MadMadPotter — the red in the center is very striking. Attractive and eye-catching are two other words I'd use.

  3. Thank you all for your ideas on the colors. I'm still undecided…

    Isdihara – summer's here? We've been working so many hours it's hard to tell what day it is. This week I almost posted early because I thought it was Tuesday, having worked the weekend it's hard to keep track of the days.

    I do plan on posting the coasters when they're done, in what ever color(s) they turn out to be.

  4. I always enjoy stopping by your blog, TattingChic, it's always fun to read. Yes, the red is pretty and I think I've finally decided how I'm going to use it.
