AT Brooch Progress

Good morning!  Today promises to be another gorgeous early fall day.  I love these cooler temperatures!  After tatting a bit yesterday, I spent the majority of the day checking out our various outdoor spaces- picking up fallen limbs, making lists of repairs and needed items, filling bird feeders and playing with the dogs.
Here is the progress so far on what I call the Autumnal Transition brooch:
 Valdani Pearl Cotton in M80 ("Distant Grass") looks very nice with the AB stones of the brooch.  I plan to add more accents in M80 and S154 ("Antique Gold") Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk.  The pistachio-bronze freshwater pearls pictured above will more than likely be used as accents on the outer rim of the brooch.  What do you think do far?
Today I plan to work on the Autumnal Transitions brooch, fiddle with another tatting design idea and work on cleaning up my favorite outdoor tatting area in the woods.  Have a fabulous day & until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!


  1. Wow! Is that looking beautiful!! :)

  2. It's looking lovely so far, all it's done today is rain, misty and dank.

  3. That pearl cotton is beautiful, so soft and dreamy. I've never used Valdani before but after seeing all the lovely things you make using it, I believe I'll be giving it a try!
