Tatted Baby booties progress and "PEAR GLACE" HDT


This is a new HDT, (Hand Dyed Tatting thread), that I have been working on for approx one month. I just couldn't seem to get the color just right but I had a brain wave and finally produced what was floating around in my head. "PEAR GLACE" has subtle and soft variegation and is lusciously "Peary".

After my last post I stopped following the pattern and went off in my own direction.....big surprise. Now I have ideas for my own tatted baby booty pattern, and this is just the first draft.

Another picture to get a better size reference. I used beads in the toe medallion. I hope my sister-in-law likes them.

Sherry, they're just adorable. I can't imagine anyone not liking them!

Of course she will love them - furthermore its in silk.

For all my DNw n DNc - none have handmade items. But I shower them with love and tenderness. I will teach them to enjoy sports (my Achilles heel) and crafting (most likely to start with scrapbooking).
