Nope, yesterday was not nearly as awesome as the day before. I scrambled around the house early in the morning to get things done before the heat arrived. It arrived very quickly and the house was shut up like a cave. Add to the cave two of my very active nieces and my daughters switched on all the crazy they possess. It was therefore, a tiring morning. After lunch my charges were gathered up by my sister and my kids went down for a nap. Then I got some things done.
First up was this small one. I just tatted round a ring and added the small diamond shaped piece to the center as I went. Then I added a couple of other silver beads from the grab bag to the top and bottom and it was done. I was asked after I posted this if I had plans to do a video of tatting around a ring. I want to say someone has already done that, but google didn't immediately find it for me. I guess I'll put it on the list for later. Of course this is yet another technique that I worked out for myself, so I could do it completely wrong...or at least very different from the usual method. I really have no idea, but it seems to work for me.
Speaking of components, after more searching, I did locate a small amount of the silver flower filigree from the first pendant in yesterday's post and ordered those up. I was also directed to another silver bit that I liked enough to pick up a few of as well. Both of these necklaces are still in the shop by the way, no crazy sell off for me again. I don't have any real set tatting plans for today, so I guess we'll just see where the day takes me.
