Found: One Fancy Button

... and some new beads - as if I needed more!

I also have some new thread , in preparation for a 
new challenge with Umintsuru in September.

Isn't this sweet?

Renulek Uodate

I'm on the penultimate row, which is quick. 

The next row will take longer and use a lot of thread.

Not blocked yet.

Love the light silver thread.

Needed this. 
It works nicely.

Little Gifts

For some cousins: Magic Buttons. 
These things are great for small delights. 
Plus, they take very little time to tat.

Edelweiss 2


Actually, I had tatted a quite few repeat elements, but missed a join, so I chose to cut them off. This time I just could not not demonstrate Diane's brand of perseverance!

This is one of Renulek's patterns. 
I think it is going to be a beauty.
You can find it on Etsy,

Rebellious Tatting

I had to join in the middle of an element because I was REALLY completely out of thread. Using a wonderful little tool gifted me by Denise I was able to hold the thread at the very tip, utilizing every single millimetre. Judy Banashek would have had a conniption.

Then I used the only green I have - a new ball and a different shade, but there are only two repeats with the alternate colour, so it is not too obvious - maybe.

Here's the renegade join:

The handy little tool:

On to the next project...

This One Is Green

Another button. 

I was going to crochet a baby blanket, but, honestly, when I started the thing, I actually immediately became agitated and quite queasy! Crochet is just not in the cards for me anymore! I'm giving the yarn to crafty friends who will do lovely things with it. Whew!

So, back to buttons and I'm looking at a new Jan Stawasz pattern. Frivole is on the final round of that beauty.

... for the next row. Margaret said it was to be the final row. Is that so?
