Good morning, dear readers!
We are gradually getting back into the swing of homeschooling and I am somehow managing to get in a little bit of tatting time each day. Plain Jane is slowly being transformed into Lady Jayne, but I had to take a break from her. There were a couple of design ideas bouncing around in my head that I had to play with.
Anyhow, here is a peek at the beginnings of Lady Jayne:
This is the center motif with a few bead accents.
And this is the drop accent that will hang from the center motif. I may add more beads, according to how the side pieces turn out. They may be needed to provide more balance to the necklace.
The above image is of a bracelet prototype that I'm currently designing. I really love this Valdani Pearl Cotton in color O538 "Cottage Smoke". It looks great with the Delica beads I'm using and also the pearls I plan to add on another subsequent round.
And here is a little pendant motif I'm still playing with:
It began like this...
Then grew to this...
And this is where it is at now. I sidetracked myself by starting the bracelet prototype! The bracelet idea popped into my head as I was contemplating the next round for the pendant. That O538 Valdani pearl cotton was sitting there just begging me to tat something with it, and the bracelet idea popped into my head. I sketched it out roughly and began tatting.
I'm hoping to get back to Jayne this weekend, but it all depends upon how well the bracelet project goes. For some reason, that is what my hands want to tat.
It is also time for another Piney Woods Event, isn't it?!? I have oodles of vintage buttons and other miscellaneous goodies that may be put into the give away- or do y'all want me to put up a special OOAK piece? Comment on this post to let me know which you'd prefer or if you think I should do both!
Well, Rosie Fey is ready for our morning run. Guess I had better take care of her and the chickens before starting homeschool for the day. May you have a wonderful week full of tatting goodness! Until next Friday~
