A Bit Bothered


Ohhhh, I am getting more than fed up! I am just finishing the last motif of this round which took longer than it needs to, as I am also paying with Under An African Sky - for the sake of sanity.

Now it will not even fit on the chair, but I have not yet re-measured it. Considering it is tatted in #12 Perle, it is pretty darned large.

Lovely pretties in the post from Frivole for me, 
and from Marta for me and The Boss!

  3. Don't be fed up with the Stawasz piece… it's magnificent! Lucky you getting presents from all over the world. I like the necklace, do you have more info on it? What's the stone? Is it Marta's own design? It looks like Tatsmith's way of tatting around a stone.

    1. If I can answer your questions: in this necklace is a cabochon of white glass.
      And yes, it is my own design. In fact, it is a "no project" because I make these necklaces without pattern: I start and further leads me thread ;)
      I started making necklaces such as this from that here: http://craftbymarfka74.blogspot.com/2011/11/sznurkowe-opowiesci-cz-7-praktyczne.html
