Thread Size 80 Heart

This is a little delicate heart !
With the Libeth Elderberry Jam

very tiny pink bead 11/0

I did place the beads on the shuttle first, but sometimes I forgot to side them onto the ring before tatting so thought I would explain what to do if you forget!  Can be done with crochet hook if beads and thread are larger but if not try this!

The bead was not big enough to fit the bead with four threads through it, so I used this method to place bead on,   the purple is "ring thread" notice above picture and then it is slid down. I put shuttle through where you see the pink thread, then continued on finishing the ring.

I made other mistakes at the top, (just couldn't concentrate) and had to cut and start over it is harder to do with tiny thread and just rings. Still want to keep it though :)

    1. No Carollyn just water, and yet more water, a lot more flooding in Berkshire and Surrey. The Somerset levels are just devasted and more rain coming over this week, there is no end in sight.

    1. Very funny, hopefully yes :) and with out supervision! It's just another way to put beads on when you forget to start with one on your ring and using tiny beads hopefully this makes sense.
