I had the privilege of teaching a class this last year at Lace Embrace. I taught my Bohemian Picot Play Bracelet. This five strand bracelet was designed to teach a different picot technique on each strand.
This is a fun little pattern, very little stress involved--if you can tat a chain, you can make this bracelet! If at any time, you say...".my brain can't learn anymore today! " Instead of tatting the next row with a newly learned technique--tat a duplicate of one of the rows that you have already done--you can tat all five rows using the technique taught on the first row! There are no ends to work in (a
big plus for me!)
I sold kits for the bracelet--they had 4.5 yards of 5 different colors of Lizbeth size 3 threads and some picot gauges made out of plastic needlepoint canvas. The kits also contained bracelet jewelry findings with split rings attached, floss threaders, safety pins, and coordinating beads. I never realized how much work putting together a kit for a class took. To all those teachers, who have sold kits for the classes that I have taken---THANK YOU!
Cynthia and I should be traveling from Ohio today, headed for the Finger Lakes Tatting Convention in New York tonight. Should be....because once again I have had to "flake out" on her and leave her with the choice of traveling alone (with no one to split the bills) or not go. I am sorry Cynthia!!!I also apologize to those who took the Bohemian Picot Play Bracelet class at Finger Lakes. I hope you were transferred into another class that you will enjoy.
My dr. this time when I asked about the trip said (exact wording) "I think it would be detrimental to your health, if not deadly." That deadly got my attention. It has made me re-evaluate a lot of things in my life.
