Memorial Day Brooch

This is my Pinchicks pick, and this week as our holiday weekend.
We remember those who have fallen serving our country.

So we could live free. This event opens our summer in the
Below is the construction of this lovely Victorian Brooch.
And marks the time when holiday began, after our country's Civil War
in 1867

The first layer is rings and chains in a size 80 blue.

Second  layer is white size 40

The third is size 20 in red and all are directly tatted onto the bezel.
 The Pinterest brooch had no layers.

You could take a little picture to place in bezel and glue it with a glass dome.
the Pinterest Brooches had little tatting in their ovals,
  that were slightly stuffed like I did.

Hope You Have a Wonderful Family Weekend :)

Monochromatic tatted lace doily

I still have two more rounds to go.  The pattern is free on Instagram
look for "tattingweed", she has a couple of very nice free patterns.

This thread is large size 20 and feels thick.

For this style the thickness kind of grows on you :)

This is harder on my hands, so I have been taking breaks, want to make more but with smaller threads maybe :)
Have a wonderful Week :)
