Good morning, dear readers!
Dad is doing a bit better today, but has a long healing process ahead of him. Many thanks for your prayers.
As promised, I am posting a new FREE pattern this week. It is called the Fairy Queen pendant and is inspired by All Hallows Eve, when the sidhe (fairy folk) can visit our world through "thin" places. Today's post is the foundation.
Supplies needed are: 1 spool of Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in S93 "Silver Foam", 24 Swarovski 3mm light grey pearls, and 48 silver-lined gunmetal Czech seed beads and a size 8 tatting needle.
String all beads in the following order: seed bead, pearl, seed bead.
R5-5- (with seed bead, pearl, seed bead) 5-5 CL RW
CH 7 - (with seed bead, pearl, seed bead) 7 CL RW
R5+5- (with seed bead, pearl, seed bead) 5-5 CL RW
Continue tatting to form a foundation motif or 12 Rs and CHs.
Accent tatting will be the steps featured on tomorrow's post.
Let's hope today is more condusive to tatting than the busy, noisy hospital was yesterday! I'm off to it, then. Hope you have a great day & until tomorrow~
