I've used these beach-themed beads before, and I knew they were too big for the Ice Drops. However, as you can see, I just had to give it one more try. I think I'll put these beads away now. I'll find another use for them, just not with Ice Drops!
Despite taking a very long nap this afternoon, I managed to tat another motif for my sister-in-law's runner. I really am enjoying tatting this pattern in this color!
