Trendy Teardrop in green

Here's how the Trendy Teardrop set looks in a pastel shaded green. I used my own hand dyed thread in Celery. I'm still working on the pattern, but hopefully that should be finished this week, and then I'll make it available in my Etsy shop.

Last week was very busy with family activity, so not a lot of time to work on either tatting or dyeing. I did take time to "remodel" my blog, as you may notice. I did some experimenting with it this past weekend, so if you popped in during that time you may have caught me while I was in the process of rearranging. My free pattern links are now on their own page, which you can access by clicking on the tab at the top that says "My Free Patterns". I'm aware that I don't have all the links there yet, but will add them as time allows. Comments on what you think of the new look are welcome!

Green is my favourite colour. And these won't obviously make me change my mind!!! This pattern is really lovely ;)

I thought something looked different around here... The new layout looks nice, I like it. :-)

I always worry that someone is going to be on when I'm messing with the layout of my blog, wondering if that person is sitting there thinking, "What the heck is going on!?" :-P

Marilee, you amaze me! Your designs and your colors are fabulous. Will you be attending the Downers Grove lace event this year?

Thanks much! Glad to have the comments on the green set. I think the pattern should look nice in any color, and I'm preparing the pattern to sell soon.

There were a few moments this past weekend when my blog looked totally messed up, LOL, but I've decided that it was worth it because I like the current template.

Diane, yes, I plan to carpool with the Lighthouse Lacers to the Downer's Grove Lace event on June 18. Hope to see you there!

Some needle tatters have told me that they do enjoy my patterns.
The Trendy Teardrop pattern is tricky because of the Catherine Wheel Join, but a normal join will work, too - the edges just won't be as smooth.
