Tatting "Beatrice" - Day 6
I didn't think I tatted very much last night until I compared the pictures this morning. I forgot a join, so I had to retro-tat two rings and a short section of chain. Amazingly, that only took me about a half hour! I also had to take time to wind my shuttle and join the new thread. I think the next time I make this, I might wind several shuttles before I start so I can keep my momentum!
Yes, I ordered some of the snowflake picture frames! Now I have to find a pattern and thread that will work. The opening is only 1 1/4", so I think the snowflake can't be more than 1" in diameter. The snowflakes are very lightweight, especially compared to the other photo frames I have. They can hang from the ribbon, which I don't really like... I think I'll replace it with some pretty organza! The also have a magnet on the back, and there's an easel so that it can stand up! What a treat! I doubt that I'll get these made for this Christmas, but I'm all set for next year!
