New adventures in tatting! A friend suggested I buy this pattern book and make earrings, and Maureen volunteered to own my first pair. How nice of her... The next time we went to Michaels, we spent a very hungry hour searching for the right kind of beads. She decided she didn't want exactly the version in the book, so we made some appropriate modifications. I think they turned out so beautifully that we might end up having matching pairs. A new steam iron got some use, and the earrings are pressed and ready to go.
