Trinity Foundation

Celtic Faire
Good morning, dear readers!
Hope you had a great weekend.  Ours was busy and full of puppy mischief. 
 
Here is the basic foundation of 3 ICRs that will be used for this week's tatted items:
 
 
It is tatted with a size 8 needle, Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in S9 (Herb Garden) and is accented with light creamy pearl Ornella Czech seed beads and 3 Swarovski 3mm bicones in a lovely Spring green color.
 
To begin with, string 9 seed beads onto silk and tat the 3 ICRs with the following counts:
First ICR 5 very small - 5 very small - 4 - (slide 1 Swarovski onto needle then finish forming picot with 3 seed beads) 4 very small - 10 CL
Second ICR 10 very small - 5 - (slide 1 Swarovski bicone onto needle then finish forming picot with 3 seed beads) 5 very small - 10 CL
Third ICR 10 very small - 4 - (slide 1 Swarovski onto needle then finish forming picot with 3 seed beads) 4 very small - 5 very small - 5 very small - 5 CL
Bring both ends of silk thread to front and tie knot, leaving ends to be worked in later.
 
I have a couple of projects lined up using this base that I hope you'll like!
 
Well, Rosie Fey LOVES the Piney Woods!!!  We went for several walks this weekend and she explored and sniffed until she was worn out.  She was so funny looking for squirrels that were running through the trees overhead.  She'll eventually figure out that she needs to look up, but she was on high alert, nonetheless.
 
 
After taking the kid to school and doing a quick grocery store run, I plan to take Rosie for a romp in the woods then get down to work in the Atelier.  Let's hope Rosie is ready for a good, long nap after her romp!  Until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!
