We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

What I Did Yesterday

I put my legs up yesterday, and had no tatting done. I just stared at the herringbone chain I beaded the day before and decided I should practice beading again. So I pulled out my beading magazines and picked out a page that showed how to do the St Petersburg stitch. Voila!

Before my dear tatting folks think I'm neglecting my tatting, I will just say that I've decided today what I will tat for one of my new hankies. I doodled a pattern I'm going to experiment with on paper in the train, on my way to work this morning. Will give you a glimpse of the idea I'm hatching as soon as I have something decent.

Happy Monday.


  1. I yearn for the day when I can play with beading! There are just not enough hours in the day! I don't know how you use that board but I've seen them. I have a huge collection of beading magazines just waiting for me to play with them!

  2. So pretty! I love the combination of red and gold!

  3. Your beading looks amazing. Love your choice of colours and beads.

  4. Hi Val,

    Since I have not been able to transform myself into a beader, I can admire your work and say "Fabulous job!". With your tatting and your beading, you must be an extremely patient person!


  5. Must be wonderful to be able to do tatting and beading! Gorgeous Val.
    Thanks for entering my giveaway and best of luck.
