A Wonderful Weekend

Blog theme for October~
"One Of A Kind"
Good morning, dear readers!
I had an absolutely wonderful weekend!  The tatting mojo was flowing and I got quite a bit of work done on many OOAK projects.  I guess we have my super-hubby, Jim, to thank for it.  He kept me happy with campfires, walks in the Piney Woods and fantastic grilled foods. 
Here are a few things I tatted on Sunday:
As you can see, two are antique cameos that are in the beginning stages of being "dressed".  Any names you'd care to suggest for the newest ladies, dear readers?  And the other is a design prototype I'm playing with using a Swarovski chaton, champagne pearls, Delica seed beads, and Valdani Luxury Pearl Silk and size 12 Valdani Pearl Cotton.
This is what it looked like when I placed it aside last night.  There is much more tatting to do on this one!  I will most likely add lots of beads and am contemplating some Swarovski bicone additions.  What do you think?
Today I plan to finish the "Haunting Elegance" piece and dress the cameo ladies.  What are your tatting plans?
Well, Rosie Fey is ready for our morning run.  Have a fantastic day and be sure to check out the blog on Halloween for a special "treat"!  Until then~
Happy Tatting!

  4. Lovely starts to your beautiful creations, I found a beautiful brooch in a market just calling out for tatting, so it's sitting on my table looking at me while I think of what colour to try. This will be my first project
