New book nearly done!

This bridesmaid's headdress completes my new book. All I have to do now is to check through it for mistakes and to add an abreviations/instructions page.
What on earth am I going to do now? Any ideas? Mind you, the last time I asked that question I was landed with designing this latest book! LOL

Finished arrangements

This is just to show how different the same motifs can look, simply by assembling them in different ways!

Designing all done!

Here are a few more motifs that I have done for the new book.

I have done enough patterns now and my next job is to show how I assemble the motifs into arrangements.

Here are a couple of motifs that I am going to use in my new book "Tiaras and Headdresses".

My idea is to show that the same motifs can be put together in different ways to achieve a different look.
In these pictures, the motifs are simply placed together for the camera. I will eventually wire them and then tape them together, probably with some little fill-in daisies as well.

Headdress motifs

Here are a few motifs I have come up with for the latest book of patterns. I shall show how to assemble them into both a hair slide and a corsage, showing that the same motif can be used in more ways than one.

Tatting time again

At last I can get back to my tatting. Boy have I missed it.....but I suppose that it will be all the more pleasurable after the break.

Now, do I continue with the tatting tiaras or have a go at Jane's TIAS (tat if and see)? Hmmmm, I'm spoilt for choice!
