This is one unfinished example of what I've been working on this week.
I like the "stained glass" effect that comes from combining a bright multicolored thread (my own HDT "Roses" in this case) with black outlines. I'm attempting a series of variations on the same basic pattern, my own original "Wondrous Window", which I plan to submit as a collection to a magazine for consideration. Shown here is the space-filling effect from adding beads over crossed picots - my first time trying this technique. I was inspired to try it from seeing this technique used to perfection in tatted jewelry by Iris.
I have some skeins wound, and will be dyeing a batch of greens shortly.
