The day's forecast called for rain, but it has turned out to be a gorgeous day- if a bit windy. The trees in my Piney Woods are ablaze with vivid color! As I was sitting in the woods, I sifted through my thread basket and found that my hand kept picking up Valdani size 8 pearl cotton in color O533. This particular color really draws my eye! And I had just the right beads- two-toned 4mm Swarovski bicones, yellow rainbow finish size 10 seed beads and an 8mm bright red Swarovski bicone for the center. This is what I tatted:
This will be a pendant and I am thinking that I can make a smaller version of this that would be perfect for bobby pins and hair clips. Here is another view of my "Vivid Autumn" pendant:
I am also preparing some free patterns that will be posted the week of Thanksgiving, so, dear readers, stay tuned for upcoming goodies! Speaking of goodies:
The Piney Woods Harvest Event deadline is November 16th! Click the google "Join this Site" button for your chance to win the loot! Good luck.
I think I will head back out to my retreat in the woods and tat some more. Have a wonderful day doing whatever makes your soul sing! Until tomorrow~
