Test Tatting with Silk Thread

Pearls & Lace
Good afternoon, dear readers!
It started out as a dreary, cold & rainy day here in the Piney Woods.  My morning was spent with a warm puppy in my lap whilst I read a Poirot mystery on the Kindle.  It was very relaxing.
I did do a bit of test tatting.  In the last pearl order, the company I deal with sent a complimentary spool of silk.  Quality pearls are always strung with silk, and since they know I work with silk thread, I was sent a spool to play with:
The thread is a lovely icy blue and tats up beautifully!  I have requested samples in various sizes and colors to see how I like the thread as a whole.
I've almost finished the Spring Blossom pendant, but still have a bit left to go.  Perhaps I'll get it finished this evening.
Well, the sun is finally out and Rosie Fey is really ready for a long walk in the woods.  Have a wonderful day & until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!
