Playing with threads

At the weekend I've been promised an 'invasion' of two little grandkids!!! 
Now I usually put my test tatting rejected pieces on a corner of my table for them to 'raid'!!  Of course they do get 'specially commissioned' pieces too.

This time I intend to leave these (must add some phone tag thingies to them) in amongst the other bits so they can find them!!!  Oh, if you want the pattern (beads could be put in instead of letters) then it's here.

The Abbi one is made with three strands of something like sewing thread and has beads.  I love blending threads.  Nathan's has no picots or beads - more suitable for 'big boys' of eight!!!

I keep saying I'm going to try something with names. Maybe this will be the summer! I think that might be something my grandchildren would like. Playing with threads sounds like so much more fun than, oh... housework.

They are gorgeous Jane and I love the way you have put their names on them, they are going to be delighted with them

Fantastic, Jane! A must-tat! I will have to do five of them. What a terrific project. Thanks!

Your blended threads look positively scrumptious, and the blue one is so much more suitably masculine. They are both sure to fall in love with them at first sight!
