"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

Rhapsody in Blue

The thread is "Sue's Blues" by Yarnplayer; the pattern is "Asters" by Mary Konior, found in Tatting with Visual Patterns. I pinned a row of beads in between the two rows of tatting. I wasn't sure how this ornament would turn out, but I'm very pleased with it.
