Tatting Tea Tuesday September 8, 2009

It’s Tatting Tea Tuesday again. Today I’m working on snowflakes.

All of these snowflakes are my patterns, the two smallest ones are from a design made last week.

All of these are made with DMC Cordonnet Special white in size 30. I’m planning on doing a few in colors as well, but I’m doing the ones I know people expect first – you know, white. But they do look good in white.
I found some bangle bracelets in gold and in silver. I thought I’d try putting some tatting in a few. I’m not much on working with beads but I might even try a few with beads – maybe. I’m sure they would really be eye-catching, I’m just a little lazy. You’ll see them if I do any.
Now, back to the white thread and more snowflakes.

  1. A blizzard of such stunning beauty, I want to catch one on my tongue. Your holiday cards will be fabulous.

    What an inviting cuppa too. *dashing.off.to.put.the.kettle.on*

    Thanks for joining in Tatting Tea Tuesday!

  2. I love your snowflakes – do you starch them at all? Maybe I should be working on those rather than doilies! Thanks for the encouragement 🙂

    Snowflakes in the bracelets – I would hang them in my windows!

  3. I'm glad you like my 'blizzard' Isdihara. I'm hoping it will keep snowing for awhile!

    No, Cindy, I don't usually starch them. They're not really that big so usually keep their shape without starch. I was thinking of hanging the bracelets in the window, too!

    Thanks Fox!

  4. Thank you so much Elizabeth! I really appreciate that! But something I'm not very good at – yet – is getting the patterns down and easy to read and making sure they are right. One day I would like to give a book a try. I'm happy you like my blog.
