Rings and things

Here is a ring.

That's all I'm saying - it's a ring!!! 

A metal one from the necklace with the oversized beads (now my new Christmas decorations).

I think this is going to be my next  project!!  This size of ring (¾" internal diameter) seems to be pretty standard as I've 'acquired' lots over the years.  

All I've got to do now is pull out BC3 and get him working again.  Just when he thought he was going to have a rest!!!

The very, very last one!!!

This time I've used white again but this time with green beads. 

Now to find something new to do. Not sure what I'm going to tackle next but I do know it'll be fun!!!!

The penultimate bead dangle

Now a change of colour again. This is number 7 of the 8 beads that I have of this size. 

White is just lovely and I've chosen gold beads and clear Swarovski crystals for this one. 

I've not had time to do anymore to the pattern for a few days but am hoping to get it done soon. It will include patterns to fit four sizes of beads. Originally I hadn't intended to publish the details as I thought it wouldn't be of any interest. BUT I've had a few comments where people have asked for details so it will get done!!!

Sticking with the green!!

I've also managed to start putting the pattern together so it could well be available for all the different sizes of beads after next weekend. Well if that's if I'm not distracted by other things which are beginning to tempt BC3!!!

Today it's still the green thread but with red beads!!!!

Christmas is coming

And the goos is getting fat. Please put a penny in the old man's hat!!!!

How very stupid to be talking about the 'festive season' when we're not even halfway to the next one. 

I've decided that this year I may actually put these covered beads up as decorations. I never ever get round to putting tatting up anywhere at Christmas. I think we're just two grumpy old gits who can never really be bothered!!! However when I've done all 8 of them they may make a nice decoration. Well, that's the plan at the moment!!!

Here is another one - green thread with green and gold beads.
