Not too shabby! On the left, the original teacup; on the right, a test of a new design to make it larger and add my own touch, and the bottom center is my attempt to enact the prototype in the final colors. "Real" cup (the white/pink/blue one) was rippling outward instead of curving upward, so I cut off the colored round and will try again. I still think it will work. Quite pleased with myself, and I got to go patronize my favorite local shop again, Heindselman's in downtown Provo.
Here on the left, we have a shamrock pattern I was trying out, and on the right, my adaptation of it to add a bead to the stem and have the stem end tatted in and not knotted at the end and cut off as I usually see them. I hoped to make them into earrings, but time got away from me and I didn't get the next generation with decorative beads and picots made before St Patrick's Day. These are made in size 40 Christmas Green and Christmas Green variegated in Lizbeth thread.
