Okay, so I'd have to work for a year to be promoted to novice in beaded tatting, but I like it! This is Size 30 Cebelia with tiny glass beads. When I make the real wedding lace, I want to use parchment colored thread and old (looking) seed pearls. We'll see! I'm not going to list this as part of the 25 motif challenge until I actually finish it and attach it to a hanky. I hope some of you will test it out for me and make any suggestions you think would help. Thanks for all of the creative help I have already received. All in all, I'm happy with my second attempt at designing and my head is already spinning with new ideas!
