I saw a very pretty edging motif on Bree's blog. I have several of this type in vintage books, but have never found one I could easily tat. Bree's photo made it all so clear...I figured out a way of tatting it.
I then realized it had been a most auspicious move to have purchased the green beads, when I did not even have a plan for them - not even an inkling!
As a matter of fact, I did not have an intended use for either the gold ones or the dark green ones, and just look at where those Delicas ended up - on the new red border for Diane's hankie!
And now, I have remembered a gorgeous thread I have - Lizbeth #40, though it is the old stuff and is terribly twisty and it shreds easily.
Bree's lovely example has been the catalyst needed to put the lime beads to their highest and best use:
Mini-Boss needs fancy socks, don't you know! Really, with this thread? Can you see why I got so excited and had to start tatting right away?
Ah, the creative muse trills a hearty yodel ... : ))
