I got these beautiful beads from Running Springs (eBay shop) and I've been dying to use them, but couldn't find the right project for them.

Since yesterday's threads also included LizBeth 20 #661, I thought they'd go well together.  I also wanted to try the gold thread (also LB 20).  I also wanted to try a bracelet from the bookmark pattern since I kept putting the bookmarks on my wrist and thinking it would be pretty... 

Well... it was going to be "The Bollywood Bracelet" since that's what I kept thinking while tatting, but...

...That didn't work for me.  The thread split and my hand go sweaty and... ugh.  I'm going to attempt un-tatting even more than I already did, sewing in some ends and adding more thread... it'll be my first time doing that.  

The colors don't seem as vivid on the scan, but it was actually the vivid colors that made me think Bollywood. LOL.  

Well, I hope you all had a better tatting day...  :-*

With Love,
Stephanie Grace

The enlarged view shows those pretty beads. Hang in there. It's good to know how to add in a new thread.

That looks so cool! I have had my frustrations too, cuz' yesterday I was tatting a bookmark which I have made 4 of already and my brain left me and I found myself tatting a chain up-side down cuz' I didn't reverse the work first. So I didn't tat at all yesterday after that-I figured it was a definite sign of a needed break. :)
Can't wait to see your bracelet finished! :)
