Projects Galore

Shabby Vintage
Good afternoon, dear readers!
Rosie Fey is doing much better today.  Many thanks for your kind words of support.  She is sleeping at my feet but will probably be up soon- ready for an afternoon walk.
There are so many projects going on in the Atelier!!!  I have something special for tomorrow's blog post.  These are the materials that will be used:
A vintage 4-hole shell button, a new pewter charm that reads "I am the PINK in his world of camo", rainbow hot pink Czech seed beads, hot pink dyed freshwater pearls, Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk in "Roses" and Purely Silk thread in "Strawberry Pink".  What do you think this project will be?
Another project I'm working on is a pendant using Sulky Blendables 12 wt. thread in "Lime Sherbet" with Ornela cream pearl seed beads and Czech silver lined green seed beads.  This is the bare bones foundation:
This will be greatly fleshed out to make a frothy, frilly pendant.
And another little goody I have that Jim & Jocie gave me years ago is this pin:
My "Queen Mother" pin.  I have put this on top of several different tatted backgrounds and worn it on jackets and dresses for Mother's Day each year.  I plan to do a new background for it this year.
Here is my challenge to you, dear readers:  go through your little boxes of treasures and find something fun to create with.  Leave a comment and tell me what goodies you've found to play with.  I love to hear what you are up to, you know!
Well, Rosie Fey is stirring and will be requiring my full attention shortly.  May you have a wonderful day & until tomorrow~
Happy Tatting!

  5. Hi Rachel,
    Those supplies look absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to see the finished product. :). I am currently working with 3mm light gold swarovski round pearls, size 11 gold lined, iris finish czech glass seed beads, a 6mm crystal golden shadow top drilled swarovski bicone, and Valdani pearl silk in colors wheat husk and subtle elegance. My oldest daughter is graduating from middle school in a few weeks. Her school is holding a dance, not unlike a prom, and the dress she picked out is cream colored. I am going to surprise her with a tatted pendant, earrings, and a bracelet to match. Have a wonderful day!

  6. I'm so glad Rosie Fey is recuperating well. Those are gorgeous pinks! Are you creating a bracelet? The pendant base looks great, and I'm wondering how you'll make the froth and frill.
