I was procrastinating trying to add beads - why, I don't know. I guess I was just a little intimidated by adding another step. Remembering how to join, where to join, which join to use, and how many picots confuses me enough sometimes :)
This is why it's so nice to have tatting friends to tat with in person, and try new techniques. Michelle and her daughter and I met yesterday to tat, and we worked on the Mary Konior "Posy" as a wreath. I asked Michelle for some help on adding beads, and she brought some beads and her bead spinner and got me started. (That bead spinner is a worthwhile little tool if you use beads - I think I need to get one!) Once I got the hang of where to place the beads for this particular project, it was a piece of cake. I finally finished this cute little wreath tonite:
I'm so over being intimidated by beads!
