Proofreading

Doing the final proofreading of my new book before publishing, and so far I've found an errant "the", a redundant "ing" and 2 double stitches that went missing. Will continue to check it over carefully, and then when I'm satisfied it's correct, will take it to the printer. I'll also make the digital eBook available for purchase soon. I won't know what to price it at until I find out how much it will cost to print it. This book has 48 pages, which is 20 more pages than Up and Tat 'Em, and is crammed with good stuff - at least I think so :) The title of my new book is Marilee's Beaded Tatting Finery, and here's a sneak peak at the cover:
I just counted the photos in the book and there are over 190, plus a diagram for each of the 15 patterns. So, must get back to proofreading for now, but wanted to keep you posted that it's coming very soon!

I am like a kid in a tatting store. Excited for you and looking forward to the book.

I can hardly wait! I need another book to drool over. *sigh* This year I'm going to actually tat something from one of your books! The ebook sounds wonderful - I can put it on my ereader and carry the patterns with me.

Currently working on the Fiesta Necklace from this book. I've found several earring patterns that complement it but haven't settled on a bracelet pattern which would you recommend?

Marilee Rockley said...

For matching earrings I'd probably use the "Carnival" earring pattern from "Tatted Jewelry" (it's very much like the side motif on the necklace) or else just the center of the bottom motif of the necklace, leaving off the floating rings. You could add some seed beads to the chains. Have fun experimenting!
