Can you believe I was practicing this join on sewing thread? And the clunies? And the tiny, eentsy, weentsy, rolled ring that you cannot see with the naked eye? I need more help than the problem evident in the photo.
*******************My sister asked for some remnants for a project she is working on. I am delighted to send her a bunch of tatting, as I am drowning in motifs that I have made.
Now I always carry a bunch of motifs to give away to interested strangers, (I gave one out last week to the owner of a shop who was delighted) but I have WAY to many for the limited opportunities I have to chat about tatting to the interested public!
I wonder what she has in mind for these pretties.
Lastly, I had a brainwave: Mom does not want a birthday gift . Nothing, she says. Just a card. Not even flowers - her cat, Archie, eats them.
So, I thought that if I gave her her own hankie that is over 65 years old, but tatted a border around it, it wouldn't really be a present as it is already hers!
She is not that interested in tatting - truth is she couldn't care less, but she could tuck this in her purse, especially in the summer for those moments when the humidity is overpowering. What do you think?
I am playing with colour and debating whether to just go with white with a fancy, Iris Niebach style edging or a more subdued pattern, tatted with a variegated HDT.
The above thread is Karey Solomon's. I have been saving it for over a year and it is one of my favourites. The lovely colours do not show very well on the screen. Ah, the possibilities!
