Windmills and TIAS day 7

 Mary Konior's Windmills. This pattern goes by so quickly! I might make this into a larger piece, but I think I'll leave it alone for now.
TIAS day 7. My suspicions about it being an animal look to be well founded.

And the problem continues...and gifts


Well, just as I was starting the last ring in a new Windmill, whadaknow?
The thread breaks again! I know I tat tight, but I've never had a thread break this much. Why Lizbeth, why?
So I had to add thread all just to finish the last ring. I haven't ironed it yet, so it's wavy. I can't figure out if that means I need to make my picots longer or shorter. Anyone know the answer?

And for xmas:
3 Lizbeth in size 40 (I've only ever worked w/ size 20 b/c that's what's available at the local store here)
3 Lizbeth in size 20 (to mach other variegateds I have)
Shiny shiny beads and Swarovski crystals
Also, some beautiful Kopper Patina size 50 from LadyShuttleMaker.
