Second, and last, version of this suncatcher. There, I've even got a name for it!!! It actually fits in a bangle so I shall mount them all in those as Christmas giveaways. Quite pleased with this one!!! The unfinished one on the right is just me playing with bead and thread variations.

This is an idea I'm playing with now!!! Not sure if this will be useful or not. The stitch count needs 'jiggling' and perhaps the 'spokes' need to be separated and not joined at the outer green places. I shall play with this later and also not use the very long picots with loads of beads. It may look a lot less cluttered with beads on the actual SR's and chains. Back to another re-tat!!!!

My dear friend Sue sent me these earring hoops and I just HAD to make something to go in them. I used my own pattern which and when finished 'tied' them into the rings using some invisible thread. I just can't wait to wear them but MUST go get a shower, dressed before I do!!!!

Finally found the missing elephant - that's the good news. Bad news is that he/she suffered many washes in the pocket of my favourite jeans!!! This is the one I'm talking about towards the bottom of this page - http://janeeborall.blogspot.com/2006_06_01_janeeborall_archive.html . A dead elephant. Still the finished one is happily on my web site now!!! http://www.e.n.e.btinternet.co.uk/elephantonion.htm

This is the last one. I don't feel another one popping into my head at the moment. VERY pleased with this one and it's just the right size for the Christmas giveaways. Again I've used three rings on the second side of the split ring to form a clover. It'll need stiffening slightly with the beads, I think.

This version uses the same basic idea on round 1 that I used before. I've had to slightly alter stitch counts. This version will be a five pointed star (yes, Sue, I do listen!). The interesting part of this is the clover on the split ring. I wondered if it would work and it does. Lies very well too. Need to now add beads and 'play' with stitch counts on round 2. I'm not happy with the chain coming out of round 1 so will try another idea. Can't wait to use beads on this one!!
