New ice drop - - nuntium duocentesimum quinquagesimum primum

Here's what I made yesterday with my fellow tatters and while sitting with the family as they watched basketball.

I've been thinking about this one for a long time- the color combo and beads.  Yesterday I finally had the time to do something about those thoughts!  I don't know what to do with it though.  Should I make a pin out of it?  A pendant?  One of my daughters suggested a suncatcher.  I just don't know.  This is the deadly part.  When I don't know, it languishes in my box of finished-but-what-will-I-do-with-it stuff.

And thank you for the lovely suggestions about the pin.  I'm going to try them all!!

And thank you to those who looked at my girl's shop.  She was so excited last night to tell me about all the views!

  1. Will it fit inside a bangle? I know we all tat with different tension, but I'm pretty sure mine will fit inside a bangle. I just haven't tried it yet. I'm planning on adding pin backs to some more of mine. I found some smaller pins that will allow me to sew the pin above center. I've found that the larger pin backs that fit across the center tend to flop over. That said, I think this would make a wonderful pendant!

  3. Je suggère un pendentif suspendu un tour de cou en frivolité. La couleur est ravissante!

    1. Haha- thank you! I really like it too but the first thing my younger daughter said was, "I like everything but the bead in the center!"

  7. You have used one of my favourite coloured threads and it looks fab, I am sure you will find a use for it, such a shame to languish hidden away.
