Well....I tatted this suncatcher trying out something new. I didn't have beads to match except these little ones so I decided to see if I could make "tatted beads". I tatted 2ds and placed one bead from the shuttle thread, then 1ds and another bead, then either a join or a picot(which ever was needed at that time), then 1ds another bead, another 1ds and another bead then 2ds. They work!!! :)
Usually I glue the knots then trim close, but I wanted this done and just before I put it on the scanner I was trying to straighten the chains a bit and if you look to the left hand side you will see that the chain broke and is floating. Oh well.....I could always use another suncatcher for me. :) Now, that I know this works, I might try another(but, I will glue the knots before I mess with anything next time)!!! :)
