What are you most proud of? The colors of the beads and thread seem to go well together.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's fun to play with thread, beads, and color! In case you didn't know, there's a tatting course on Craftsy.

This is gorgeous! I'll be going through my bead stash with new appreciation and excitement. Marilee you are giving tatting the "fashion forward" boost it needs to make a huge comeback!
