First on the agenda, finishing Jan's Monster doily. I really want to enter it into a fair. I'm thinking the State Fair since it's coming up in May/June. If I don't complete it in time for that, there's always my county fair in the fall.
Ice drops were on the tatting menu as well. I purchased a multi cabachon resin mold in different sizes, now I have something to use those finished items on.
Diane also posted a Heart version on Facebook that I had to try. This one was tatted in size 20 Lizabeth in Christmas Red. I used the middle sized cabachon with this. I did have to increase the base stitches by 2 on both the rings and chains took make it fit. I also did the same for the rings and starting curve of the heart. For the longer side chains, I used the numbers she originally used. I'm very happy with how this turned out. The cabachon had a high dome so if I was to embed other items they wouldn't be obscured by the side chains by much. The Birthday Ice Drop is one off my favorite drops to make. I made one with a lower dome so you can see the difference.
