Expand on a good thing

Since I liked the red with the multicolor thread so well I tried it on another solid. Blue. here is what it turned out to be.

one more to add

I decided to work with size 10 thread, get a bit more coverage and used a simple pattern

1st round
R 2 p 2 p 2 p 2 p 2 p 2 cl
(picots are joined on second picot to second to last picot from previous ring)
CH 3 p 3 p 3 p 3 repeat 9x

R 2 p 2 p 2 p 2 p 2 p 2 cl
CH 5 p 3 J 3 p 5 repeat 9x
(Join is to middle picot of previous round)

Working with odd numbers makes it easier to make patterns or work with beads should you wish to add them. Working with even numbers of rings will make it very simple to run one single line around as this one is.

Chritmas ornaments part 2.

I really am loving working with christmas ornaments. They move along quickly and you have a lot of options you can try to get differet effects. I am probably going to pull the red on red and change that out for possibly white on red or a dark color to stand out against the red background. It looks different when you have it in your hand as opposed to getting pictures of it.

Here are a few more examples of the ornaments. I guess this is what happens when you have a lot of thread and nothing else to do right? heh.

I hope you all enjoy these newest ornaments.

Hearts Desire

I completed a third heart and this time went with the solid red so that I could attach the ladybug. It just seems like the right addition to this tatting.

Hope you all like it. Cause it is kinda glued on already. hehe.
