I’ve been working on various tatted motifs and trim that would look Christmassy done in red, green and white.
This evening I went to Hobby Lobby looking for shiny little sequins, bells, beads and ribbons to make the cards look more festive. But when I got home and started arranging the motifs and edging on cards, I realized that, at least to my eyes, the plain tatting is more beautiful. Adding shiny things to it seems to detract from rather than enhance it.
Pictured is one motif and edging that I especially like. I’ve done others that I’m not as pleased with. So I will probably do more of this design, then do some Christmas tree patterns.
It was 100 degrees again today. Summer isn’t giving up easily. Making Christmas cards in an air conditioned house helps put me in a delicious crisp weather frame of mind! 🙂
