Looking at another old pattern

Now I was searching around a week or two back and came across this pattern which I immediately thought looked outdated!!  When I did this design it was at the time when everything that came through our letterbox had a CD in it and, of course, this was a challenge to me to use them!!!

I'm not going to take this pattern down but I did think about re-tatting it.

Below is what I did with some of the CD's and I had these hanging in our front windows for a few years - until they started to fade!  Not sure where they are now but they're in the house somewhere!!!

They look lovely and must have looked lovely in your windows.

Eine tolle Idee, die CD´s sehen prima aus.

I remember those! I even saved old CDs, but I never tried the pattern. I wonder where I put those?

I remember those too. I remember all the CD's that came in the mail. I saved them to use them with my tatting, and even tried a couple. but son thought they were more fun to play with, inside the house and out. I never would have used them all anyway. Thanks for the memories.

Neato! I can see these hanging from the Christmas tree!

I can imagine them hanging in a window, the sun shining on each movement as a light breeze set them to dancing!

These made me smile. I think I need to show these to the absolute strangers who live in a purple (yes, really) stucco house I pass on my way to work. They have a whole bunch of cd's stuck over the branches of the two trees in their front yard. They'd look so much better with tatting!

I made a line of these and hung them up, what I particularly liked about the pattern was the two thicknesses of thread.
In the end I cut them off the CDs and used them on the front of greeting cards.
