At the designing board in blue

 This week a vague idea came to me from out of the blue. 
I started tatting it up, posted my work in progress on Facebook, and someone commented "tiara". The project of a tiara hadn't occurred to me, but while looking at what I had so far, I agreed, it could be. I still want to do the original necklace design I was going for, so I'll probably do both. I'll need to buy more Swarovski crystals and more large hole Toho beads! A trip to Midwest Beads, soon then. (My favorite bead store since they are scheduling a tatting class for me to teach there in February!)
The Bead&Button Show class catalog arrived in the mail, and guess who has 2 tatting classes listed!!! I've got an advanced class, and a beginner class both in the catalog. Yes, they're expensive, as are all the classes at this large, prestigious event. But hey, tatting deserved to be showcased, too.

For those who still don't know, I've got 2 classes on Craftsy now. Here are my affiliate links to preview them:

The blue is looking interesting, tiara yes it could be, in white it could be a bridal head gear.

Thanks, guys, but actually I've found out that gravity is ruling out the tiara idea. Beads too heavy for the lace to stay up. But, it will be a lovely necklace! Working on it now!

I loved your 1st Craftsy Class and just ordered your 2nd though haven't had time to go through it yet. Anticipation building!

Great design. I would insist to work the tiara idea... What if you would use a accu-flex beading wire as core thread where you have pearl tatting?
