Good evening, dear readers!
I have spent the day playing with various thread and bead combinations. It is very helpful to the design process to test tat thread & bead combos. Some beads are heavier than others and can cause your tatting to twist or pull. Plus, I love to play with different color palettes.
Neutrals have always fascinated me with their understated elegance. Pictured above is Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in S514, "Wheat Husk". I am test tatting a motif with silky brown satin Delica seed beads and cream pearl Ornella seed beads. So far, so good. I'm rather pleased with how the colors of the beads compliment the hand dyed Valdani silk. I'll take some images of the motif when it is complete to share with you.
What color and bead combos do you like to use, dear readers? I am always looking for new ideas to use in my work. If you have a recommendation, please post it in the comments section.
The chicken enchiladas are done. Time to take them out of the oven and eat supper. Have a wonderful evening and until tomorrow~
