#25 Motif Challenge
I am mad for this pattern of Kersti's. I find"Stumpy" to be elegant and so very versatile. Especially in the last of the Manuela thread. I might have to do a whole bunch more!
The bugle beads are another mater entirely. I am not fond of the look of them at the best of times, but they were included in that lovely container of beads I recently bought, which you can see here, so I thought I would give them a try. I am still not a fan, but I am glad I used them.
I had planned to place the beads symetrically. Ha!. Enter the old dyslexia demonand and well, balance is elusive, but I think the motif is just lovely anyway!
A Manhatten visit is imminent and I have crocheted and tatted a hat for Mini-Boss-Maeve, but her brothers have not been attended to with the hat hook and shuttle.
While admiring the umintsuru dragonflies last evening, I had a brainwave:
Liam's is blue and red, and Graham - who is a Shrek fanatic - shall have the green. The dragonflies, already tatted as pattern-testers, are ready to be sewn onto the front of the hats. Good call?
