Earring pics as promised.

These are one of the pair of earrings I bought at the Loominosity Show last Saturday. They are made by Marilee Rockley aka Yarnplayer . Her etsy shop is here. The thread is her own hand dyed 'Snowflake' and some very pretty blue beads with a cute pearl bead in the center.
I also got these lovely bear earrings made by one of the ladies from Loose Bead Society. They are pink quartz with crystals. I love quartz and think it it prettier than more expensive gem stones. Also this my attempt at Jane Eborall's flurry snowflake found at her pattern page here.  I made it in Yarnplayer's 'Sugar Maple' size 10 with size 8 glass beads. This was fun to do and I learned a new way to do SCMR.
Well fall is in full swing and as the leaves fall it is the feeling Winter is not far away. I love Winter except for the sub zero temperatures. Snow is lovely and all the Christmas lights are nice. But it makes me realize it is also a hectic time to get all things done. So many snowflakes to make so little time! So with that said time to go back to work!
Please remember some of our dear tatting friends in your prayers like Sherry Pence(LadyShuttleMaker) that all goes well with her delivery and Tatting Chic who has a job lose coming up. I know there are others, and I know they appreciate our prayers in their behalf. TaTa for now.

Oh, the Yarnplayer earwigs are gorgeous. I'm intrigued how you did the SCMR a different way. I always close mine the new way as I like the effect. As you say - too little time and too much to do!!!

I love quartz too. I probably wouldn't want it in the shape of a bear, but I do like quartz in all colors.

Glad you had such a great time!

I remember those earrings! I'm happy you got them. And your tatted autumn flurry snowflake is exquisite! The beads look like the perfect addition.

Those earrings are so delicate looking.
Don't you just love that flurry pattern? It looks so good with HDT - which again I thank you so much for.

Thanks Jane, yes Yarnplayer does have gorgeous earrings.I did the scmr Jon Yusoff's way. You don't need to use a pin or paper clip just keep a loop at the end.
I thought of my daughter for the bears Gina, since she is in Bear and Moose country. It was a great time.
Thanks Yarnplayer, I truly enjoyed our time together. Jane's pattern was a lot of fun to do!

Oh, TAT19540 - that's the way I learnt from the Houtz brothers first book!!! I'd never thought of using a pin to hold the loop!!!!! Old dogs (me), new tricks!!!
