Awesome snowflake!!! :)It is prettier than those we are expecting any time now. :)
Love that colour. Zing a ding ding.
very nice love this pattern and how the beads are used
Hi Fox,I have seen Wendy's gorgeous doily I am looking forward to seeing yours.Lovely snowflake.Love to Gian.Margaret
Pretty snowflake. Love the color you did it in. I'm going to have to go over and get this pattern.
Very pretty, I have some pale lilac bugle beads waiting in the wings to use for this snowflake but I love your compination.
I am not particularly fond of this colour that you used but the silver beads really made a difference. Lovely tatting.
Interesting comment, Jon, in that I would not have chosen this colour: the thread was a generous gift. I played around with the beads till I found a combination I liked, and I too liked the silver with this shade! It is certainly good to stretch beyond one’s colour comfort level. I now am fonder of that colour. : )
This is a wonderful use of bugle beads! Sally expained that she uses a beading needle to get the bugle beads on the thread. I assume you also use this method? I want to try it. Your tatting continues to amaze me! Such a variety of patterns and threads, especially the very 'fine' threads! And it's amusing and inspiring to read about your frustration, discouragement, then triumph over whatever obstacle you encounter!
Thanks, kathy. I use one of those blue dental thingys for adding the beads to the thread. Very easy. I don’t like beading needles - threw them out! : ))
Thank you for the comments, Tatters. This was such a fun tat.Fox : )
