Nearly, But No Cigar...Yet!

Wearily, I am tatting through the final row.

While babysitting tonight for the kiddlets, I was happy to be in different surroundings; I suffer cabin-fever working at this at my place for it is too large to truck around to various other tatting hideaways that I often frequent.

You shall all most probably be happy to see the end of it as well! Thanks for hanging in with me. I know I could not have continued without Tat-Land’s contributions. : )

  4. This is an extra ordinary piece of work that you should be proud of. The time and effort that you put in, encourages the rest of us to continue to tat in our own little worlds. Thank you

  8. Hi Fox

    It's a beautiful mat and you will be pleased with it when you have finished it, a beautiful heirloom for generations to come.
    I have pieces of tatting which my grandmother made that must be one hundred years old,
    Love to Gian

  9. The last round is pretty and I bet it could edge a hanky. You have hung in there and the result will be something to be proud of!

  10. I think it's gorgeous! I love that boring beige - a good choice for the final edge.

    I could only hope to finish a large doily in the short amount of time (really) you have tatted this one. I stuff away doilies I've started because I get bored with working on just one thing, but here YOU have trudged on amid other things. Including a move! Sheesh.

    Do you even realize what an inspiration you are?
