I've managed to get another of my patterns written up and it's available for sale in my etsy shop. This one teaches you how to do what I call "sewing" on a bead cluster with a focal bead (the sewing is done as you are making the lace with the tatting thread itself, so the bead work is still incorporated right into the lace). It's one of my favorite ways to add beads, and while it is easier to do on small pieces, I will do it even when I've got a lot of thread to pull through the beads, because I really like the results.
I call this pattern "Flora" because it reminds me of a little flower.
<-----------Look at this picture! Another failed attempt at staging! Why is it so yellow? you may ask. Well, I told you I just can't seem to get the lighting right.
Here's another example (below) of "sewing" on beads, but in the middle of a necklace. As I mentioned, this method of beading on tatting can give you problems if your thread is really long, but the effect is well worth it, in my opinion. A little bit of patience and steady hands will go a long way.
Anyway, if you're interested, pop on over to etsy and have a look.
