I have this beautiful new thread from Tatskool. It's Coral Reef size 40. I started a doily with this thread, but the center just curved so badly that it fits a glass ornament beautifully(which will be another project), and then I started a motif with it and just could not get it right from the start. I don't know why, but I had to make something with this thread. Then, I saw this pattern for the Wandering Blooms Bracelet by Dawn McLaughlin here: http://web.archive.org/web/20051201013809/www.georgiaseitz.com/2005/dmcbracelet.pdf
and decided to give it a try. It worked!!!
It's a little different than the original(less beads, and a jump ring and lobster claw clasp), but it's still awesome(I think!). I am stunned at the elegance of it. I kinda of named it a little differently.....I named this one Coral Waves. :)
Fox, you asked about the tablecloth...I have been working on it. It is about 13 inches and 34 motifs on it right now. I know it will take quite some time, but my husband is too excited and keeps encouraging me to work on it when I can. He says he doesn't want me to get sick of it so just work on it when I feel it's right. I will show it again when it gets a bit larger.
