The Watch

I found a pattern in the "Tatter's Workbook" in the form of a triangle. I added another side to make it a square. I added beads to the design while tatting it and presto a watch band. The thread is HDT from Yarnplayer called Tourmaline. I love her threads! I've been playing around with this to make sure that the threads will hold up with the weight of the watch head. It tends to roll around a bit so I think I will weigh it down with a few trinket hearts on the clasp.

Oh, that is gorgeous! Inspiring! I just may do something similar! In fact I've had similar/but different designs in my head w/ tatting /beads and a watchband. I love Yarnplayers tourmaline, too! It's beautiful and thank you for sharing.

I read your next post about comments. I'm sorry you're having trouble with someone being upset about not responding to their comments. Hopefully you can get that all straightened out. In the meantime. Happy tatting! You are doing beautiful work! Keep posting! :)
