A Dark Ecru Motif In Progress

Shabby Vintage
Good afternoon, dear readers!
I have been busy with housework today, but did manage to sneak in a little tatting time this morning.  For some reason, the dark ecru 12wt. Sulky thread was beckoning me to do something with it.
I really like to use the Ornella pearl seed beads with this color.  At the moment, I am debating which element to add to the center and how I want to expand the motif.
I have a couple more pieces ready to have images taken, but the weather has not co-operated.  It has been steadily drizzling for the past few hours.  Perhaps I will be able to get images tomorrow.
On the agenda for the rest of the afternoon and evening is cleaning a few vintage accents to feature on the blog next week.  I plan to talk Jim into going to pick up something for supper as I am not in the mood to cook.  Well, I need to check the vintage stashes in the Atelier and make my selections.  Have a wonderful evening & until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!


  1. Love how fantastic that looks!!! :)

  2. Looking lovely so far.
    Hope you had a cook free night with something lovely to eat.

  3. SUCH an attractive motif! This is really an eye-catcher.

  4. I love the interlocking rings that you make. I don't know how to make them. Do you have instructions so I can learn how? All your things you make are so pretty. Thank you so much for sharing with all of us.
