A WIP, Marilee's "Wondrous Window" pendant:
It's done now, but needs blocking. I'll show the completed pendant with full stats in a day or two, after I make the matching bracelet and earrings.
This is the variation that uses woven beaded picots. It requires a total of 6 paperclips, some of which are re-used a couple of times. I chose this variation because, given a choice, I am basically incapable of choosing the simpler version. Plus, it was fun and I got to explore a new technique.
Don't forget that April 1 (it's after midnight here, so that's tomorrow!) is the most important holiday of the year: International Tatting Day, the day that tatters have chosen to celebrate and publicize our craft. The original "instructions" for ITD are (1) tat for yourself, (2) wear something tatted, and (3) eat chocolate. A good set of instructions for any day of the year, I'd say. If I might add a couple of suggestions, try to tat in public if you can-- a coffee shop, the library, a park, anyplace where people might notice what you're doing and ask you about it. And don't eat the chocolate while tatting, unless you happen to be working with brown thread!
