Thistle (Ciuline)

O noua incercare si sper si o reusita.
Un ciuline, da ati citit bine. Un ciuline.
Mi-a placut combinatia dintre firul verde si margelele mov asa incat am facut o incercare.
O pereche de cercei, gata de purtat.

A new attempt and hope a success.
A thistle, yes you read right. A thistle.
I liked the combination of the green thread and purple beads so I made ​​an attempt.
A pair of earrings, ready to wear.

The difference is...

The diference is ... very simple, as you guessed.
So, in first image is a simple ring with bugle beads as picots and Floating rings (TOR) and it is worked with 2 shuttles.
Second one, is , like first one, a simple  ring with bugle beads but I use 1 shuttle and ball, and SLT before and after Floating rings .
Simple no?
I made a step by step guide for  both methods.

What is the difference?

Last night, after we went to bed,  I dreamed of snow and tatting (strange dream).
I woke up with a snowflake pattern in my head. I had to try.
I turned the TV to not bother, and I started working in his light.
This is my excuse for not worked nicely.
The snowflake is very simple, but you see the difference?
It is the same pattern, same stitch count but different techniques.

It is the same pattern, same stitch count but different techniques.
So far I have not noticed such a big difference between using this two techniques.
I'll tell you tomorrow if you don't guess.
