Blue Mood

After doing the laundry and fixing supper last night, I settled into my tatting chair and dug through one of my project baskets.  I came across a few old photos of my grandmother, Leola.  She had the most vibrant, piercing blue eyes.  As I recall, blue was her favorite color. She is no longer with us, but she is often in my thoughts- especially as I do needlework.  I picked up a partial skein of Caron Wildflowers thread (sorry, I can't find the color number) and tatted a pendant and hair ornament in Mamaw's favorite color.

The pendant is enhanced with an Akoya pearl, purple rainbow seed beads, 3mm sky blue Swarovski bicones and a Mary medal.  Accents on the hair ornament are an Akoya pearl and 3mm sky blue Swarovski bicones.

I am still contemplating what to do for the November Piney Woods Event.  If you would like something particular, let me know before lunchtime tomorrow!

Well, I think I will get back to making out my next Valdani thread order.  Have a great day!

Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!
