This weekend was very busy with the high school Drama Club performance of Big Fish. If you have never seen the musical, I highly recommend it!
I did find some time to tat, first by finishing round 3 of Renulek's Wiosna 2017. So far, so good!
I've been exploring different options for the peacock coins that I recently purchased. As suggested by one of the ladies on the Ice Drop Addicts page on Facebook, I tried changing the ring count on round 2 to 3-7-3. Although I like the size of the rings, the opening is actually smaller than with my original stitch count. I do love Wedgewood Dk, but it overwhelms the peacock coin.
Next, I experimented with Edda Guastalla's pattern, the one that got me started on this tatting adventure. I think Edda's pattern shows off the peacock coin better than my Ice Drop pattern.
It looks especially nice on the back side. For this version I used Lizbeth Herbal Garden.
I was pleasantly surprised with the Lizbeth Gold. I think it really makes the colors in the peacock coin pop!
I have some more thread colors I'd like to try and luckily, I have several more peacock coins!
