The outer round of the Lollipop pendant motif is complete! I am using Valdani 100% COLORFAST size 12 perle cotton in #M33 "Lollipop". You will also need 24 turquoise size 10 seed beads. Counts are as follows:
Count two ds before beads on previously made round. Run needle through top of bar of stitch just prior to these two ds and CH5 followed by 5 graduated -s 5 CL + to corresponding spot on other side of beads. Ch 5 - with 3 seed beads 5 CL + as you did with the beginning of your work. Continue around the motif, tie & cut. The motif should resemble the above image.
Tomorrow the center bead and "over tatting" will be added.

Congratulations! You package will be on its way very shortly.
Does anyone have any requests or suggestions for future give aways? I am busy plotting & planning the next event which will be in October. As I have just done a Halloween theme, does anyone have another theme idea? I had thought about tatting a fabulous Autumn pendant, brooch or earrings (one of my couture tatting pieces). What do you think?
Well, I'm off to play... er, I mean tat. Until tomorrow~
