Yesterday was SO busy! It seemed to fly by with everything that was on the agenda. I hardly had any tatting time in the Atelier- which usually makes me very cranky. Here is a look at some of the beginning tatted components of the "Glamour" necklace I'm working on:
I'm using size 12 Valdani Pearl Cotton in color O 545 (Primitive White). Accents include Swarovski crystal AB bicones and silver beige Czech seed beads. More tatting will be added to these components using Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in S 49 (Subtle Elegance) and a champagne freshwater pearl will be added to the center. Stay tuned for further progress reports. This one may take a while!
Jocelin will be starting school next week (her virtual classes start on Monday, regular classroom classes on Friday) and we've been gathering school supplies, buying clothes and getting everything ready. I thought it was hectic when we homeschooled, but getting a teenager ready for school is WILD!!!
I must say, the patron saint research has been very interesting. There are lots of design ideas swirling around in my head and I am doing my best to write everything down in my design journals.
Well, I had better get myself in gear and head to the Atelier. I plan to tat as much as possible today- hope your day is a great one! Until tomorrow~
