Being stuck in one’s bed does nothing for creative thinking. I thought I would try something new - a small sampling of a border to use up the left-over white on the shuttles, so I turned to le livre de Monsieur Peacock...
See the white border? As I was tatting it the purple one fell out of the book. Seems I have already tried this particular pattern!
What are the chances? I mean there are 144 pages in the book!
I noticed that in my fevered state I have managed to re-interpret the original pattern by leaving off the outer picots and eliminating a portion of each chain giving the repeats a rounder, more fan-like appearance. I rather like it! All is not lost.
It is from this book. Ohh, how I love this book!
