Playing around

I do enjoy tatting the basic Ice Drop pattern, because it can be completed so quickly. I usually can finish one in about an hour. I wanted to do a little something more, but I wasn't in the mood to follow a pattern. So, I played with chain length and number of picots. This one is tatted in Lizbeth #648, Pearl Blush. The outer chains have seven picots, and the inner chains have five picots.

While I liked the way the Pearl Blush Ice Drop turned out, I wanted the picots to be more defined. So, I increased the outer chains to nine picots and left the inner picots at five. I do like the way this one turned out. The thread is Lizbeth #189, Pink Ice.

I'm pleased that I was able to tat two Ice Drops today. I'm subbing every day this week, and I'm scheduled to sub Tuesday and Wednesday next week. It's almost like working full time!


  1. Love these basic ice drops - I’m too lazy to fiddle around with changing patterns. I just want to follow a pattern and not think any further! I’m really loving these pastel color threads too - a nice change from the bright colors.

  2. So much for retirement, you’re busier than ever! Such delicate colours, really lovely.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
