Nice work Snowy!
She identified the doily, now getting close to being half-way tatted.
She also suggests we shall make it through the booklet!
That would indeed be an accomplishment.
The thread is Silky again, and I am liking the colour, as it reminds me of my favourite colour-way in Lizbeth thread - Vinyard Harvest, I think it is called.
Once again I am truly enjoying another of Iris Niebach’s convoluted one-round wonders!
At the same time and breaking my one-at-a-time rule, I have begun the hankie border that I ordered thread especially for.
It was a challenge to find the right colours for this special silk hankie, which I received a while ago from umintsuru. It is one of my favourite hankies ever, but the silk intimidated me.
It is a soft, pale peach colour, beautifully finished on the edge; so beautifully in fact that I am not sure how to attach the tatting without nasty holes showing in the silk
After a lot of browsing, I found a Sulky Blendables that I thought would be perfect, and when the mail arrived I saw I had picked well. You probably can’t see on your monitor how it has exactly the right, subtle, pinkish tones to enhance that in the fabric.
I tried a few edgings - vintage all - and liked how this one seems to mimic the embroidered flower.
Now I have to invent a corner and that always makes my heart quicken. There is never a lot of confidence on that front and the mirror trick can be counted upon to elicit dyslexic tremors!
There were other patterns I preferred a bit more, but the picot-joining edges of those did not seem appropriate for the curves of the hankie, so I had to choose carefully.
Maybe I should use - ugh - invisible thread?
