It sure is quiet around here now that our youngest grandchildren have gone home. I miss them already!
My fascination with Dorset ring buttons continues, and part of that fascination is trying out new threads! I've never worked with perle cotton before, but I decided to try it out after a tatting friend suggested it. I found this assortment on Amazon. The price was right and the colors appealed to me.
I'm not sure I would use perle cotton for everyday tatting, but I think it works well with Dorset ring button ornaments.
I think I'm going to have to have a set of these, one in each color!
After I finish my set of 12, I'll have plenty of patterns to try out. My new book by Gina Barrett arrived in today's mail There are 67 identified button patterns in this book and there are instructions for variations. I've also joined the Gina-B Silkworks group on Facebook so that I can learn from others. What fun!
