My Tatting Has Bling



I have admired beads added to tatting by others for some time and thanks to LadyShuttleMaker's awesome tutorial I finally gave it a try myself. She explained it in a way that I understood easily and I was so happy when I closed my first ring with beads. I was VERY excited!

I'm almost half done with this little motif, but I thought I would adopt my husband's college football philosophy and post a picture before I complete it. He always says of his favorite college team at the beginning of each season, "I'm going to get excited now, because they may break my heart later." Sadly he's usually right. Hopefully things will go better for me and my sparkly little buddy...

Nice job! I like the way you snapped the photo with the light hitting just so on the beads! :)

Thank you Tatting Chic! I may become a bedazzling tatter! I love sparkles and I have a TON of beads. :)

I agree with Tattingchic -- your photos are always so artistic. I love the effect of the beads and also the thread color is so pretty. I am amazed how you seem to pick up these new techniques so easily.

Thanks Martha, that's very nice! I am lucky that there are bloggers like LadyShuttleMaker who take the time to put together really great tutorials. It sure makes it fun!

Hi Ann, You sure do pick things up easily! Just look at that motif! Way to go. Live the colours in the pic as well - very pretty arrangement.

Hi Fox!
Thank you. Between the pink carnival glass and the evening sun, there was a nice glow.
