|Another reason to practice clunies .|
Well just in time to fill the whole house with the wonderful smell of hyacinths
|The button is 1/2 inch or 12 mm.|
|I know I took lots of pictures...|
|I just like how they came out :) I am going to make hair clips with these.|
|Except for this one above, it's not that great (picture came out too light) but shows the size 40 thread with the size 20.|
|I know I could run to store and buy the proper size but I do have stuff round here to experiment with.|
|Have a wonderful Day and Week|
|Don't know why I put it off for so long, Diane sent me one of hers the pretty ones in brown in upper right, Many Thank Yous Diane. Seeing it in person is always convincing!|
|It is that list of "thing to tat" it is like candy which one shall I try next :)|
|And yes I finish this latest round of the 2017 Spring Doily you can buy the entire pattern and work it, or wait for a week by week release game which is what I am doing:)|
Thank You Renulek
|Sooo back to the story, I "The Queen of Nick Nacks" Do not own 20 mm jewel things (I have the larger ones). And yes I bought the peacock ones on eBay, Thanks for the tip Diane.|
So I found a button, and this is what happened I cut the shank off with tool at bottom of picture.
I could have left it on :)
|I was so surprised to see everyone else breaking down and making one too here are directions remember to get 20mm gems Ice drop PFD is located in the file section of her face book page|
|Well here it is finished in time before the release of next row :)|
I always have fun working on Renulek's doilies they are beautiful!
Thank You :)
|Well maybe you can guess what this is for. If interested this 2 shuttle edging pattern it is below :|
Ring (with three beads slid on ring to back) of 5 double stitches, picot, 5ds., picot, 5ds, three beads 5ds close ring, and then chain of 10 three beads and 10 and connect to 2nd picot of ring. then repeat for length you need. Its great and can go curved of straight.
|I didn't place enough beads on shuttle to make it all the way around, so I got creative and saved three sets of pearls to rest at the top of cameo, and fudged at the sides with Josephine knots instead of beads,|
Will just say it looks artistic? :)
|Well the spring doily (size 50 thread) lays under the Cameo. |
this may give you a size reference.
|To change things up a bit, I was able to talk Diane out of a beautiful Ice drop and look how cute it would look here!|
I could also see a pretty white collar made with Margaret's Ice Drop Heart too!
|Last post I covered the edges with the tatting. Now I made flowers on left side|
leaving long ends from tatting to sew down to collar.
|I added some antique buttons next.|
|Then, a simple chain stitch in the holes, next to the fabric at top.|
I am going do do little more soooo
Stay tuned to this blog :)
|I did cover this cameo long ago and posted it.|
|I bought this collar off of eBay for about 6 dollars|
|The edging you see is just a beginning and I will make more brown edging for top and some flowers with pearls for middle and side .|
|I am planning on stitching browns through out the fabric part of the collar too.|
lets hope I will stick to this task and Finnish at least within 2 months.
Hope this week find you creative and happy!
|My friend Let ( click on her name) who has a wonderful blog, and is multi talented like most of you all. She recently did some wood burning for jewelry. I do dabble in this when I make my bunny shuttles, but never very large projects. I see Let only on the Internet, with our blogs and Pinterest we run into each other.|
|You start with drawing a picture in pencil|
|Then slowly dot your way, starting with the part of the picture the is not the most important so you will learn how quickly your wood burns (each type burns different times)|
Make tiny dots to start cause the hot burner will slide too fast and get away from you!
|Now I am ready for cooking. This wood burning is called "Pyrography" there are many beautiful spoons out there on Pinterest!|
|And Yes I did finish my Pinterest Pinchicks pick from Instagram it is a free pattern from tattingweed it was pinned on Pinterest and having trouble sending to blog so have the screen shot. This pattern was a joy to tat I just misplace the thread and could not finish it oooops|
