Earrings 21/25 Motif Challenge

So far this morning its a lovely morning,  we were supposed to be cloudy and then rain,  well its a blue sky and a bit of high cloud,  I think they got that a bit wrong.
These are some earrings I made the other day,  new patterns which I found,  the top picture shows a free pattern from Free tatting patterns site called Riddle  link to the site.   The top two in the picture are without beads, in Springtime and black and white.
This picture shows a close up of the pattern and is in purple and white with purple and white beads. There is a pattern for a necklace which I will try.

These earrings are called Rainbow, from Frivolite a la Navette link to the site.   On this site you find a tutorial on how to make these earrings it really is a great tutorial.  I did not have the purple beads that match the other beads so I added white beads,
I am really pleased with these and plan to make more.
All these earrings were made with Lizbeth thread no 20.

Do you remember on my post about Madeira I told you about the Agapantbus which they considered weeds on Madeira and I said mine were in a pot and should flower in August well here they are flowering.  The blue is a bit darker than in the photo but they are making a great show,  You may see some what looks like dead bits,  they are not dead it was my Foxglove flowers and I left them on for the seeds to dry.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend,  until we meet again take care
