Labor Day at Corney Lake

Good morning & happy Labor Day!
 
We are heading out to spend the day at Corney Lake- again.  We went up there for a while yesterday and it was so pleasant.  Today we are taking hot links and chicken breasts to cook out on the portable grill.  Jim will be in charge of cooking while I will be sitting in the shade- tatting away.  After a nice lunch we plan to play off-road in the woods.  What are your plans for the holiday?
 
This is the motif I began work on yesterday:
 
 
I'm using 12 wt. Sulky Blendables in the "Parchment" colorway with satin silk Delica seed beads.  Perhaps I should expand this motif a bit- fluffing it up, then add a couple smaller similar motifs to form a tatting ornament for my brown wool cloche.  What do you think?
 
Well, I've got to pack the Jeep for our day out.  Hope you have a fabulous day & until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!

  3. This piece is looking great! If you're thinking of added several smaller motifs to this I'm getting the idea the finished piece is going to be quite a bit bigger. Are you thinking of a pin/broach kind of thing, or just a tatted design stitched to the cloche? I'll be checking back to see how you finish it.
