I'm still making Kelly's Flower Heart earrings. A few days ago as I was leaving the house I had another thought, what about putting a doodad in the center? I think they came out very well. This pair is in Lizbeth #644 Boysenberry dark size 20. I wore a pair of them to work one day and two people asked if I would make them some. The only real question then was "what color?"
I tried a pair in Lizbeth #123 Grape Pizzaz in size 20. I don't think they look as pretty as those in a solid color. In fact I had to make two pair because these hearts use so little thread that only a little of the color change was seen so that the first two I made didn't look like they belonged together. One was mostly pink with very little purple and the other was mostly purple with no pink. If I hadn't known better I would have thought I used two different color of threads. I made two more hearts paying close attention to the color change so they would look like they belonged together. Then I only took a picture of one pair before I gave them away.
The only other tatting I've gotten done is Jane's TIAS
. I still don't have a clue as to what it might be. My husband saw and thought it might be a baby carriage and I know several other people doing the TIAS has had that thought, too. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Jane is posting day 7 tomorrow.
My day 6 of TIAS 2013 in Lizbeth #131 Vineyard Harvest size 20
I have a lot of fun reading every one's comments as they participate in the TIAS, both about what they think it might be but also about the weather they are having, where-ever in the world they are. It's hot and wet in Australia and cold and snowy in England. Here in Kansas we've had a lot of ups and downs in the weather. Yesterday it was 75° F, today it's about 40° and a chance of snow tonight. We definitely could use the moisture in whatever form we can get it!
Enjoy your day in whatever weather you may be having, along with a little tatting if you can.
"The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain."
