The final

First of all - does Gina S (@tampabay.rr.com) read this blog?  If so can you try emailing me on another address - every time I try to reply to your message it bounces on me!!!  I have the answers for you!!!

This is the last of these - I keep promising myself!!!

When I get a 'bee in my bonnet' I can't leave a design alone.  This one intrigued me as I wanted to use two colours in it but didn't want the 'fiddle' of cutting and tying.  So I decided to 'wing it' and this is what happened.

There's one split chain and two SSSR's with the second thread hidden in the first half.  Really, really not hard - I promise.  AND the best thing is - I've written the pattern down for myself!!  Do you think it's worth putting it on my web site?

  2. I am voting for "yes, pleas let us try this lovely design!"

    It is really pretty, and the colour combo in the last one is just great!

    All I've done is taken off the SCMR and made it using the SSSR and split chain. I'm going to tackle another this evening with the SCMR and the two colours. Keep your fingers crossed! I will put the pattern together - promise!!!

  8. Yes, please post the pattern. I have mastered split rings. But I haven't tried split chains yet. Maybe some day.

  9. Please, post it. I printed out the "old" version, and it would be so much nicer not to have to guess how to do the new version!

  11. Of course, we want the pattern! These are SO attractive. It's the split chains that scare me, though!

  12. I like the mixture of solid and variegated threads. I think on its own the variegated would've looked too busy.

    The solid thread frames it beautifully.

    I've used short split chains in the past, but I think I'd need to re-read how to do them again, and I haven't tried a SSSR yet, so this might be the place to start!
