Border Bound


Home in bed with tea and Advil for the cold and fresh thread for the border!  Finally arrived at the last bit, both on this border and in the T.A.T programme!

I cannot figure out what is wrong with the bonnet - except that the number is wrong in the pattern. Maybe there is nothing wrong.  I have gone over the whole thing, row by row, a LOT of times, and my tatting appears to be  right, but without a tat-editor, I might be missing something that I just keep not seeing.  I am hoping it will all work out or I can fake it and finish the border soon.

T.A.T:  finished the second last project today and will begin the last one sometime over the weekend!  I am so excited that I have almost finished!
This one's for Vinnie!

She has a new car and has created a fancy-dancy tatted ornament to hang from the mirror.

I have had a pasted a discarded tatted remnant on the plastic of the rear-view mirror that only I could possibly notice.  The piece was dark and the plastic black, and although I liked having it in the car, 
I was so amused by Vinnie's sparkly adornment of her car, that I  told her I was inspired and would hang anewer discard, one that was more  more noticeable  in my fifteen-year-old rust-baby.

So, I did.


  1. Sorry you've got a cold, Fox. Feel better soon! Sweet colors you picked for the bonnet's edging. I hope that it's going well, although I tend to lose my tatting steam when I have a cold.

    Your car ornament is pretty! I may have to give that a go!

  2. Sorry to hear you're ill. Get well soon!

  3. Get better soon Fox, colds are miserable - but your bonnet looks good to me, I'm sure when its completed you will be happy with it.

  4. Hi Fox, my dear tatting friend.
    what bad thing is the cold, get better soon.

  5. The bonnet is beautiful. You do such amazing tatting. Hope you're feeling better soon!

  6. Hey Fox, Hiiiiiii!!!
    I've been away from my blog for some time and did'nt catch up on your's either.
    I hope you are feeling good now.
    That is one pretty car ornament, I love that color.

  7. Hi Vinnie!
    The ornament is a reject, saved from the bin - but I agree, it is a wonderful colour, so it hangs in the car!

    Good to hear from you!
    Fox : ) ♥
