I used DMC silver metallic thread and size 15/0 Miyuki Rocailles. This thread is kinda tricky to work with - retro tatting is almost impossible! Nina Libin uses these tiny beads and the same type of thread in the beautiful jewelry she makes.
The pattern is Lily Morales' star catcher.
I sewed the star onto black velveteen and put it inside a round paper weight that I found on clearance. This is for a Jewish friend of mine. Pretty, isn't it?
This is my favorite time of year. I love the fall, or autumn. Trees are very pretty here.
Larry found some new furniture for his toys to play with. Here they are lounging, having a spot of tea with their dog.
I've been busy doing other things around the house. I re-upholstered the bench seat of a love seat in our family room. You can see it in the above video of Lily playing with a toy. The previous upholstery was plain black, which the Stooges had destroyed by stabbing something (a knife?!?) into it repeatedly. This looks much better.
And of course, Lily continues to be very, very cute.
