Enjoying Fall

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~
Happy Tatting!


  1. Gorgeous colour and lovely design.

  2. I am so in love with you tatting. The designs are just beautiful...!!! I love anything that either includes or is Celtic. I still need patterns even though I can tat. I guess I just have no imagination of my own. Maybe some day...
