Corona WIP 9

Finally, all 12 oval motifs are done. Yes, most of you noticed the difference in thread here. I did not have enough of Lizbeth 80-647 Purple Iris Dark to finish the remaining 6 ovals, so I used Lizbeth 80-177 Elderberry Jam which is variegated. Now to join them to each other and to the main piece with twisted chains. Sounds tedious.

Colour-wise, I am thinking too much purple. I want to add more red but I do not want to put in another order of thread as I have tons, just not in the right colour or size.

I have to choose a colour where I have a new ball as at this point, lots of thread is needed. Lizbeth Size 80 threads come in 10g or about 184 yards per ball of thread.


  1. Whatever colour you chose I am sure it's going to look wonderful

  2. Even enlarging the photo, I see no difference in the thread color. It's looking great so far! I can't imagine connecting all these things together via tatting. I can understand crocheting, but tatting would seem tricky. I'm in awe of your perseverance!

  3. It is working out great and I did not notice the color. When I am stuck and need a different color, I go to sewing thread and bring my tatting thread with me so I can get size 80 very many quilting threads match that size and you don't have to wait for an order to come in.

  4. What can I say? This is simply sensational! : ))
