On this cold and dull day, I thought I would show you my latest piece of tatting, it was going to be posted yesterday on a scheduled post but I never had time on saturday and we went to Oxford for the day yesterday. It was a lovely day and Dee cooked a gorgeous meal, thanks Dee.
This door wreath pattern was first started by Lady Tats link to her blog, it is now doing the rounds. The pattern is done with one shuttle with red thread and one shuttle with green thread, the top picture is my first effort, yes it is red thread by coats, variegated red which is all I have in number 20, the green is flora thread, I hate that thread its hard and not easy to work with, well thats my opinion. The Josephine rings although now I see the photo one has a loop beside it were easy enough to do only my thread looks more pink than pale red and dark red. I was not happy so I did another one this time I put a red seed bead, no I don't like that one either, the bead does not show up, I have some larger beads but they might be two big, or do I use three seed beads, I think another one is called for.
I added the red ribbon bow which I made, I like the bow on it and the pattern is easy enough, I don't like the green, I think I said that already shall I say it again I don't like the green.. So what do you think...............
Hope you are having a better day than me.
