Beaded Necklace, Bracelet, Earrings Set

I have made this set using purple faceted glass beads...6mm, 4mm & 3mm...and purple 15/0 seed beads  and 11/0 bronze seed beads. I didn't have the usual fishing line in a dark colour and so I used a pure Japanese silk thread, brown, which is very difficult to break, but still used it double, just in case! The pattern for the earrings and bracelet are Sidonia,s from YouTube and I adapted the pattern to make the necklace. Sidonia's YouTube videos are absolutely brilliant!

Autumn Aran Jumper

I have knitted this Aran jumper for myself to wear for cool autumn days. I made the same jumper last winter in Aran weight wool which is really thick for the winter months, but I wanted a lighter weight one for the autumn when it is cool but not winter cold, so I made the same pattern using double knitting wool instead of Aran.

Shuttle Tatted Cluny Video

At last I have made the video on shuttle tatted clunies that I promised eons ago! I just had a new camera.....GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition, which is fabulous to use and the editing software was not too difficult, but the uploading was a nightmare! there in the end and here is the result. I hope it is of help to my follow tatters.a

More Beaded Earrings

This is a pattern I got from YouTube I think it is absolutely delightful and I have enjoyed doing it very much. Sidonia (the designer) has also done a version for a bracelet which I am going to do next...just waiting for some beads to arrive.

Beaded Earrings

I saw some beading instructions on YouTube and thought I would give it a go. This is the result. I loved every minute of it and will look into getting the proper beading needles, beads, etc.

3D Collection No.4

This is the last of my 3D arrangements that I am doing for the fund raising at Palmettos Tat Days in September. I always contribute something for the silent auction and this year I decided to do a 3D collection.
This last arrangement is ideal for a wedding, particularly if a bride does not want a full veil, but it could also be worn by anyone attending a wedding, especially the Mother-of-the-Bride.
