Good morning, dear readers! I hope you had a marvelous weekend. Mine would have been better if the Saints had won- oh, well...
My finger is recovering from the paring knife sneak attack. Let me tell you- I LOVE liquid bandaids!!! This stuff is great. It protects my finger and allows thread to slide over it without snagging it. Thanks to the "Liquid Bandaid" I was able to return to tatting a bit this past weekend and did this:
I started with an antique MOP carved shell piece/button and tatted around it with Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in "Subtle Elegance" and Czech seed beads in light cream pearl and translucent turquoise. I have some "Aquamarine" Dinky Dyes pearl cotton that goes great with the turquoise beads and may do a few additional rounds with it and the "Subtle Elegance".
After my finger heals a bit more, I'll return to the other projects I have in the works, but for now, I plan to take it easy. After a bit of tatting, my finger stings and gets VERY touchy.
Well, I am off to the Atelier to tat a bit, organize a little and enjoy a nice cup of gourmet hot cocoa. Have a great day & until tomorrow~
