It was a gorgeous day in the Piney Woods! I awoke this morning to a cool temperature of 56F. Such a welcome break from all of these triple digit days that begin in the mid-80's. After dropping the kid off at school I went to our local parish park and walked my American bulldog & faithful tatting companion, Lily Fey. Although it was most comfortable out, I did not get much tatting done. The wind was too strong coming off the water for my thread to co-operate. Upon returning home I found the Czech buttons I had ordered waiting in the mailbox.
Isn't this button gorgeous??? Or as we say down here- "gawjus"! I have 4 of these beauties and ...
The afternoon was more productive as I piddled with the left over DMC size 5 perle cotton I had used on some of yesterday's offerings.
This is the result. I will expand on this and share it later.
The results of my first blog poll are: beads are the top ranked thing you'd like to see more of in tatting with recycled vintage jewelry, mixed media and buttons following respectively. It just so happens that my Czech buttons arrived today so that is what I played with.
I will be going through my bead, pearl & Swarovski stashes this evening, so you never know what I may have up on the blog tomorrow!!!
