I have been busy getting ready for Thanksgiving. The kitchen is a mess- pots, pans and such are scattered everywhere as I've been preparing our goodies for tomorrow.
I did sit down for a few minutes this morning and tatted this:
It is a pendant tatted with Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in color # S541 "Mauve Orchid" and is accented with a dyed fushia freshwater pearl, size 11/0 Czech seed beads in "purple/aqua" and 4mm lavender Swarovski bicones. The center is an interlocking chain-ring foundation of 6. This piece is a gift for an exchange partner. I hope the recipient will be pleased!
The only other tatting I've done today has been to refurbish and repair some ornaments that have been in the family for many years. I hope to get back to my Christmas designwork this evening. Perhaps I shall have some new motifs to share with you soon and you just might want to be on the lookout for the first of my Christmas giveaways!
Well, I had better check on the pies in the oven- they smell like they are close to being done. May you have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with all that makes your heart sing! Until tomorrow~
