Lizbeth Thread

I've been wanting to try this new size 20 thread from Handy Hands, and I received some in a thread exchange (thanks, Karey!). I used the round robin for beginners pattern and added a few beads on some of the joins to come up with this little decoration. The thread has a VERY nice hand and comes in lots of colors.

Something Different

I'm not of the Catholic faith, but many members of my husband's family are. Also, Dad was fascinated with the idea of a tatted rosary. Yesterday I was looking for a one-day project and I found the pattern for "Jeanne's Rosary" in the book, Tatting Online, by Georgia Seitz. I made a beaded cross to replace the tatted one, and I've attached it with a jump ring in case the recipient wants to replace it with a personal one. The thread is Olympus size 40 (which tats up like a size 20).

Hanky Time

Hi Everyone,

It's just me with another finished hanky. The lace on this one is made with size 30 white cebelia thread, and the pattern is just rings and chains with 4 ds between each picot/join. It doesn't get much simpler than that!
