Another bracelet!

I've almost finished my 'secret tats' so took an evening off to make this bracelet!!!

A neighbour saw my blue one the other day and asked if I could make her one in this lavender colour. Trouble is I now want one for myself!!! BUT I need to do other things. Ah, if I re-wind the thread back onto the balls and put the beads away then I won't be tempted!!!

Re-winding thread back onto the balls is something I trained brain cell # 3 to do many, many, many years ago. Back in the age of the dinosaurs!!!

This means that I always get the right shuttle threads matching back to the right balls. The joys of owning and loving
Aero shuttles, eh?

You are having way too much bracelet fun! Okay... I 'm just jealous. I really want some tatting time! Why, oh why did I sign up for FOUR classes this summer?

;) Ha ha!

You have mentioned more than once that you wind the thread back onto the ball at the end of a project. Do you make a note of how much? For example, it would be really annoying to find that the tidbit is only 6' long, when one needed 7'. If the bit is only 28", wouldn't one end up wondering why it got wound back on the ball? Just curious. I use plastic bread tags that I then put inside the ball. That way colours stay together but, if I need a lot of ends for a colourful tassel, I can fish a few tags out.

The color combo of the thread and the beads is really working. Very lovely!

The bracelet looks great! I'm curious too, How do you know how much you wound up after a project? Enquiring minds want to know!

Hi tattrldy. Answer? I don't!!! I never let that sort of thing worry me!!! That's why I never work out thread amounts needed. I figure life's too short. Well, mine's getting shorter by the day!!! Ooooops, I suppose everybody's is too!!!!
