Large Rainbow Cathedral Doily Suncatcher done

The design is Elaine P. Gan's Cathedral 
 I wanted a rainbow suncatcher and here it is!
It's in an 8in. ring.
 I used all Lizbeth size 40 thread. 
The colors are:  Christmas Red, Bright Orange,
Bright Yellow, Christmas Green,
Bright Blue Dk., and Purple Dk.
And lots and lots of 11/0 Preciosa Ornela glass beads.
This one is so fabulous!!  I just love how it turned 
out!!  Thank you to Elaine for her beautiful designs!!
Have a wonderful tatting filled day!! :)

Absolutely spectacular! Excellent photo! I would have difficulty giving it up! What a marvelous idea you had for the rainbow effect. It must really sparkle with all those beads! I know you have tatted several of the doilies, (wonderful design by Elaine Gan) and you're certainly experienced at making suncatchers, but how did you know the 40 thread would fit the 8" ring exactly? And when did this rainbow idea come to you?

God's Kid said...

Thank you so very, very much Kathy!!! :) As for how I knew the thread would fit, I am tatting the first one in size 40, and I just sit the ring on top and count how many rows(although, I counted 14 and ended up with 13 because this design has an elastic like ability even though I am using regular Lizbeth threads) link here: https://hiskid66.blogspot.com/2018/06/yes-i-have-been-tatting.html . And as for the rainbow, I LOVE rainbows, and this is going to be a raffle item for a ministry we a involved with and they use lots of rainbow items, so I thought it was appropriate. ;)
