Christmas is round the corner!

Well, not really!! I like to start early on my Christmas giveaways so that I can do them as and when I feel like it!!! This year I wanted to use a sequin as the basis but this has proved a long winded design as the end result has to pretty fast to work or I get fed up!!!!
I finally came up with the idea below. I may add more beads to the outsides of the SR's but that's all.
Oh, do have a close look at the points of the motif. Can you see how every other one is repeated? Having discovered that new way of adding beads to a picot has made this possible without all the hassle of counting the beads onto a thread and working out the other beads to fit in with these.
Life with beads is good in tat land - long live brain cell # 3!!!!!

I haven't found any sequins yet, but I think this looks like loads of fun! I love the way you put your tattings in rings. I want to hang little tatted pieces all around the house!

The sequin is in the centre!!! The darker grey bit!!!

Like your star in the bangle...how about doing a real fancy X-mas tree in the bangle next with all it glittering bulbs and tinsle and garland...and don't forget the star on top.
