Last night, as I was sifting through my tatting tray, I came across just a bit of Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk left on one spool. Not one to waste thread, my mind began pondering what I could use the leftover portion for. After rummaging through the miscellaneous box in the Atelier, I came across a package of endcaps for beads. Hmmm.... I began to imagine options. This is what I did:
It is only the beginning, but will eventually be a pair of earrings. I added some light grey pearl Czech seed beads and 4mm light rose Swarovski bicones with the Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk (color S204 "Nostalgic Rose"). Today will be spent fleshing out this new design. Think I'll add it to the Romance of the Piney Woods collection.
Jocelin and I will be going to an estate auction later this morning and after a nice mother/daughter lunch, we'll need to get some Father's Day shopping done. Big Daddy & Pappy need some nice, new goodies!
Well, the earrings are waiting and I've a very busy day ahead. Hope you have a marvelous Father's Day weekend! Until Monday~
