Our visitors from Singapore have gone and we are recovering after a really hectic week. We visited Stratford-upon-Avon and went around the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, then on to Oxford where we went punting on the river Thames and looked around the Oxford colleges. We travelled to Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire to see one of the settings for the Harry Potter films. And finally a trip to the New Forest and a visit to a wildlife park where we saw some fantastic butterflies, so there was not much time for any tatting or looking at blogs. However, I did manage to see the clever design that Valerie Ho discovered from Jane's fandango bookmark. It just cried out for beads, Jane sent me the pattern to try out, although I added a button to the middle and these are the results.
Jane is working on updating the pattern for the beaded and buttoned version.
And because it is "Tatting Tea Tuesday" here is a cup of tea, yes seriously it is - Flowering Dragon Eye, green tea.
The colours seem to match the fandago square!
