yesterday's chain, today's bracelet

necklace and bracelet, tatted with size 40 Olympus thread

I decided to take the chain of motifs from yesterday and make them into a bracelet. I do love the combination of these two variegateds, so I created a simple necklace to match.

chain of tatted flowers

I'm not sure if this will be a bracelet, necklace, or maybe just a bookmark. Guess I'll know once I'm done!

favorite model

Just a shot of my most popular model with some of her favorite toys. She's sporting a new crocheted hat. She's the quiet type, but that's ok.

celtic motif

The other day I did a variation on a motif used by Rosemarie Peel in Tatting for Pleasure that I thought might be interesting as a Christmas ornament. What I love most about this design is how utterly simple it is, two basic motifs woven together, yet how lovely and interesting a result it renders:

I changed the stitch count, added chains to one motif and actually inverted the position of Rosemarie's version, ok, so maybe I can claim it as my design at this point. Done in Lizbeth size 10 thread.
I thought the motif and the Celtic look would fit nice as a pair of earrings, so I tatted it up in purple and black:

Tatted using Lizbeth size 20.

hand dyed thread

It may cost more, but the results you get when using hand dyed thread or yarns is so worth it. Going back to craft chain yarn varigateds or even many preminum yarn "painted" colors just don't cut the mustard!

Above is a smart phone case I just finished crocheting up using hand dyed size 10 cotton thread dyed by tatter extraordinaire, Karey Solomon.

Gorgeous colors! Do I gave to sell it?!?
