I have a local group of tatters who get together each Tuesday afternoon. We support each other and teach each other. I have learned so much from them! This week, we discussed what to use for thread color and beads to finish out the Monster Doily (Wiosna 2017).
Here what I decided:
I want to use some green, but the green thread was too, well, GREEN.
I have more Sea Foam beads, so they went into the YES pile. I pulled out other beads I used in the previous rounds along with some “mauvey” beads.
I am intending the final border to be in black thread with clear sparkly beads.
|Sea Foam beads are in center, mauve on top, matter finish on bottom|
That left thread color for a couple of rounds in between. I pulled out my size 80 thread box and began rummaging. Nothing looked intriguing to anyone. More vintage thread surfaced from someone else’s stash and this ball stood out:
More discussion and bead color ideas were floated. I now have 4 colors in the maybe pile. I think I’ll do some test tats and see what I like…….
