I hope you all have had a very merry Christmas! We did, even though Jocie was under the weather.
If you noticed on the Christmas day post, I am giving away a prototype pendant. Well, I decided to add to it a little bit to make it a "New Year Event". Whilst shopping for a few stocking stuffers I found a lovely little lined journal that would be perfect for someone to record her/his tatting endeavors. Luckily, the journal color co-ordinates with the pendant.
For your chance to win, simply comment on today's post AND/OR yesterday's post. This way, you get multiple chances! The winner will be selected and notified on Friday, December 30th. Good luck!
Here is the purple pendant I'm working on:
It was tatted with size 8 Valdani Pearl Cotton in color O562 and is accented with 6mm "Smoke" Swarovski bicones. I'm sifting through my antique buttons and cultured pearls to see if I can find a suitable center focal point.
And this is the other little motif I've played with:
Size 8 Valdani Pearl Cotton in M24 "Water Reflections" is the thread used and Swarovski crystal bicones are the accents. I'm considering what to do on the next round. Shall I add more beads, start layered chains or add a round of rings and chains? Decisions, decisions.
Tomorrow is to be a cleaning day. I really need to clean out and organize my tatting materials! Things are rather scattered and messy. I believe I'll restock and organize my portable atelier and post some images of it at some point this week. Would you care to see how I take my tatting with me when I am away for a few days?
Well, I had better run. Jocelin feels like eating a little something & I need to fix her some soup or broth. Don't forget to comment on yeaterday's post and/or today's post for your chance to win the pendant & journal in the New Year Event! Until tomorrow~
