Well Folks, it's official that I'm to be a Granny!!! My dear Daughter has finally put it on her Facebook page!!!! What's she put?? 'Adrian is having a baby and I think it might be mine!!' LOL
Anyway, I was playing around with thread and beads the other night, and also discovered a pattern by Jeanne Lugert. Don't ask me where I found it because I can't remember!! I'll update when I do!! VBG (put it down to this 'ere halloween/bonfire baby... ROTFL)
Thanks to Ladytats... The link to this pattern is here!!
This is my version of her earrings!:
The thread is Lizbeth Pink Cocoa! and the beads are size 9 seed beads from my stash!!
I've also got hold of a few tatting books now....
Tatting Collage by Lindsay Rogers
Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior
Tatted Handkerchiefs by Kirstine & Inge Lise Nikolajsen
Tatting Patterns and Designs by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson
and last but not least

I've been 'saving' my Amazon voucher from Christmas, and another one I got.... and spending them slowly folks!! Mind you, some of the books did come from Roseground when I saw them at Harrogate Lace Fair at the end of March!!
Anyway, think I'll just HAVE to make a pendant to go with them.... beads and shuttle.... Here I Come!!!
