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Now I was searching around a week or two back and came across this pattern which I immediately thought looked outdated!!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.

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.
