Wired and tatted

 All mixed up!

This pendant is my latest experiment of combining wire-wrapping and tatting. I started with a wire weave that I learned in Aga Kruk's 2nd Craftsy Class, Wire-Wrapped Stones, Designer Techniques, and captured some random tatting into it as I wove the wire.
The woven bail technique I learned in a class by Dawn Horner, called Start Wire Weaving Cabochon Pendants.

Woven wire earrings from instructions in Aga's class.

Woven Cubes FLW wallpaper
 Bradbury & Bradbury
 Home improvement projects have taken up much of my time lately. The dining room area in my 1920s era house needed new wallpaper in the wood framed panels, so when I discovered that Frank Lloyd Wright wallpaper designs were available to order online, I jumped right on it! Several patterns are available from Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpapers. I chose Woven Cubes.

Leaving you with a pretty autumn view of Miller Park baseball stadium, which is not very far from my house in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

We have also spent quite a bit of time on home improvements. Houses from the 1920s and 1930s are beautiful when they are updated - such unique architecture.
