now I have 21 of my 25 -- might make it before Christmas
When I received the Lizbeth Christmas thread (color 116 in size 20) I couldn't wait to use it. The all-white centers and outside edging are DMC blanc #20. The pearl beads are 4mm. The beads were added one-at-a-time except for a few that had to be on the ball thread. This pattern is from my Japanese pattern book. I think it's a little late for me to learn to read Japanese, so don't know the designer.
The maple leaf motif was done by Tammy M. Rodgers from a pattern from the February 1975 issue of Workbasket. It seemed perfect for the use of Heather's Hand Dyed Thread. The color is golden cranberry avocado in size 20.
The Christmas ornament is from Lene Bjorn's "24 Snowflakes in Tatting". The pattern is The Fifth Day of December. I used white (dmc cebelia, size 20) for the rings, then added green metallic embroidery thread to make it sparkle. Next time I will use finer
