peacock ice drop - nuntium ducentesimum octogesimum septimum

At our TCT retreat, Diane the Lace Lovin' Librarian was most generous.  She shared many things including thread, thread and thread; beads and even patterns.  Through her encouragement, I tried some SLon beading thread with Shelley Perrault's pattern and a peacock bead.  Because the SLon is so thin, I had to modify it on the outside.  I think it turned out okay.

I wound both bobbins full and I think I have enough to do another one.  I have another bead so why not?  : )


  1. Love your neat twisted cord.

  2. Adding another tat to the list here. What is it about the peacock beads? They're just stunning!

    Thanks again for all your generosity, Diane!


  3. I love the way yours turned out, nice and rounded! Mine is a bit point. I haven't ordered the other colors yet. I'm finding it hard to justify another thread purchase when I have so much left!


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
