Thread Size Difference With Strawberries

This is DMC 5 with a bee! One thing I like that you cannot see, is the weight of the bag is heavy.
this large shuttle held the skein of thread and enough beads to make one strawberry,
I followed the directions found on a blog on how to add a hook,unfortunately I can not find the blog. 
The purple was size 5 lizbeth, and the red next to that is the size five DMC in the skein below.
the two smaller bags were lizbeth size 20.  I thought I would not ever use the beautiful russian shuttles because of there large size, but they now will hold this larger thread and make the larger bags.

This is enough to make one strawberry with one extra row because the larger gold beads shortened the rings.
I do only have sold one pattern and it is the strawberry bag at my email address which is... tennbrown then the at sign and gmail.com 

This is the final round on the doily, and I removed 4 flowers that were in the wrong color, I am thinking of adding a chain of black to encircle it all when done, it slow going but not forgotten.

  2. Every time I take a look at your blog it makes me want to get the tatting stuff out again. I am crochet mad at the moment but I know it will die and the tatting will return. lol
    lovely little bags, especially with the bee.
