Hi everyone! Today my computer connection is working (yay!) so I thought I would take advantage and show you what I've been doing.
TAST for week 9 is the Couching stitch. I chose this week to combine TAST with my CQJP.
I've couched down a rope of clear beads, some white rick-rack, and a sparkly green and gold rope
some gathered lace with a beaded center
I added a noel ribbon and some chain stitch
This is a beautiful tat from my friend, Fox. I added a crystal in the center and on the first round, to showcase the wonderful tatting. It looks like a green snowflake
My March CQJP in progress
You can see I've couched a pretty green ribbon along the seam in the lower right
Isn't that snowman just so cute?
then my hoop broke. Oh no!
Luckily, I had a larger hoop I could use, so I attached the pebble beginning to a larger backing material
I wanted this one to have a larger net, so I began there
The large lid I used created the perfect spot to add layers of colour
They have several tatting patterns in them that I'm looking forward to trying
the Workbasket is from June 1954
the Edgings is from 1963
I think I've had enough white stuff for a while
will someone please turn off the tap?
There's more snow in the forecast..........sigh.
Hope your days are sunny and warm. Will you please send some my way? Thanks.
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz
