That glitter thread really gives this a unique look. Nice!
Happy New Year he he. I know it is not our New Year, but it could be right??That is a pretty motif.
It's great!!! :)
The lace is very pretty! Very festive, too.
Hi FoxHappy new year to you and Gian,Lovely piece of tatting, lovely colour.Love to GianMargaret
nice effect. What did you think of the thread?
Hi Liyarra,I did not want to besmirch a new year's greeting with my opinion- I do enough of that all the time! I quite liked working with this thread, even with the stretchy sparkly added in. It is smooth and easy to tat with. What do you think about it?Fox
Happy New Year to all, Chinese or not! :-)
Hi, Fox, I love that pattern, and the color. I looks very sunny. Thank you for reminding me of Chinese New year, so we can have a look at the parade and the festivities in our little China town,this week-end I am also happy it is the year of the horse, for private reasons.
Thank you, Tatters!Fox : )
What fun! Adding a metallic thread to 'regular' tatting thread to give it sparkle changes the look of the whole piece. Queen Anne's lace is one of my favorites, too.Nice work.StephanieW in NC
This is so beautiful! I have never thought of adding metallic thread to tatting - I must give it a try. Happy New Year to you too. XX
Can you find the Queen Anne's Lace pattern anywhere nowadays? It is so lovely. I appreciate those patterns that use only rings. So lacey and such skill to get even spacing to look so perfect. Well done, and lovely lovely thread too!
Hi Grace,The only place I believe you can find that particular pattern is in one of the MK books. But, there are many like it in vintage patterns online. Check Georgia Seitz's site : http://www.georgiaseitz.com
Oh darn. She is out of print, and the only copies of her books I found were $200! Oy!
