Inspired by Jeff, I just had to tat this.
He has done something quite marvellous with the triangles. Go see.
The pattern is from Susanne Schwenke’s “Spitzen-Kreationen."
An apology to Rachael,
and many thanks.
We had engaged in a swap and she was more than generous, even sending a wonderful shuttle she made herself, fashioned from wood of a mesquite tree on her property.
You can see there is a cornucopia of thread there, all #40, my favourite, Lizbeth and HDT. And a little silver spoon charm.
You must see her tatting.
This was tatted in #100.
Yes, you read that right: #100!
Fabulous, perfect picots and double stitches.
Lastly, I have grappled with an Iris Niebach pattern and wasted far too much time and thread. I will return to this when I have more patience... Grrrrrr.
It wasn’t the clunies that stumped me, but the directional turns in the pattern. I kept getting lost and the fd/bs situation was abysmal.
