Some tatting, some thinking.....

Another Birthday Motif Ice Drop just different beads.
 Here are all three side by side with the slight differences.
 About 6 years ago I tatted treble clefs for some ladies 
I know who play guitar in ministry.  Well, a friend of 
those ladies(whom I know) asked me recently if I would 
tat a treble clef for her.  Since she is closer to me than 
the others I thought I would try to make hers more 
special.  I have a treble clef and two music notes so 
far.  :)  Pattern for the treble clef here: 
Pattern for the music notes here:
All tatted in size 10 Royale thread.
 Now as for the thinking......I got into my bag of blues 
Ice Drop gems which contain blues, frosted and clear 
just to realize that clear are much, much smaller than the 
first two.  So....I thought I could make Ice Drop earrings
 with these and they would be real Ice Drop earrings, but 
they are smaller than the glass beads I use for my Ice 
Drop earrings, so.....I am going to try a different stitch 
count for my size 40 Ice Drop earrings, or go to size 80 
and see if it will work.  ;)
So....there is part of my very gray day!!!
Happy tatting and have a wonderful day 
wherever you are!!!! :)

Your music notes are really clever! I like the third birthday ice drop too.

Tatting and music... fantastic duo! I've been using the tiny glass gems with the metallic threads, using the original stitch count. It will be fun to see what your Ice Drop earrings look like!
