Tatting Tutor and Playing with Beads

Today I met a lovely young lady who has contacted me about helping her to learn tatting. We had a delightful time going over the basics of tatting, hiding threads, sewing in ends, etc. She's off to a really good start with getting the flip down and already has nice double stitches with good tension. I am so happy she asked me to tutor her and so happy to have helped pass the art of tatting thread to another person. I look forward to the next time we meet up once she's gotten in some practice.

In addition to tatting I'm also working on some beading. This time I tried a Right Angle weave to create a pretty bracelet made with Pink and White Pearl Beads and accented with Black Seed Beads. I'm enjoying beadwork and plans to make some more beaded jewelry in the near future.

Busy Busy Busy

Ack! Where does the time go? I've been so busy working on stuff that I barely get time to even check my email. I received a large order for 18 bookmarks that I'm working on and it's taking a lot of my time. However I did manage to squeeze in some Halloween tatting for a bit of fun, so thought I'd share those with everyone.
