Beads beads everywhere...

I have finally been able to get some tatting done. My hubby was away for a week of golf in the great USA and just got back on Saturday morning. Now, yes I did miss him, but the week was a little different without him here. Less dishes to do, less laundry, less messes to clean up but more running the roads with my son. He is home now and I can get some tatting done. And the week before I was busy with an appointment with the hospital having a MRI done on my left knee.

I came across this pattern by Nina Libin on Georgia Seitz site and was a little intimidated with all the beads. I tested the pattern with this little piece first.

And I liked it. So I decided I would make a bracelet doing 6 beads on each side and this is what I came up with.

Now, I'm liking this pattern so much I jumped in with both feet and made this necklace and bracelet set. I did just stick with one colour of beads but maybe I'll be braver in the future to do it as the pattern is done. We'll see. The necklace has 550 beads and the bracelet 238.

I have some white thread beaded and ready to go for Tuesday. And away we go.

Happy Tatting everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. You're doing a great job with the beads! Hope your knee is okay. You're too young to be hobbling around!
