White Lace and Pearls


I got out my white nail polish and painted this key white and makes me want to make another :)
My husband had to go out of town to take a class and for me he visited the
"Yarn Shop"
I shout out to lovely people that sell tatting thread too!
once again this little shop is not close by the lucky people of Ohio get to have fun :)

brown with purple and gold beads size 40 lisbeth  the keys are antique replica that I ordered in bulk!
don't over pay shop around and make sure they are good size for tatting 3 to 4 inches.
cause they make tiny tiny ones that look like these too. 

My Grandmother I am sure you have seen this picture before, I  have my wire bending years and made this frame with a little chicken wire, she grown up in depression area and when first married they cleaned out a chicken coup and lived in it too. she was a tatter and crocheter and made the best apple pie ever when her children and grandchildren  make pies
you are to cut the top with a traditional pattern, from the family :)
I will have to post that sometime soon for Thanksgiving holiday.
