Oh, I do love Renata's designs. I find them entertaining and stress free, so I can play, add beads and relax - just what I need as the Morimoto pattern is giving me hives!
Can you even see the shiny gold at the joins? I know the colours are a bit odd, but as I told you, I am trying like mad to use up the small stock I have of Lizbeth #40.
Some of the stash is the green flower centres in the Japanese pattern below.
I have actually finished 6 motifs completely, but was too lazy to take a photo. Anyway, I have twelve more to tat. I am not so fond of repeating motifs in doilies.
In the mail, a package from Belgium. Gian was immedietely captivated.
Then he couldn't resist a stroll ll over the beautiful hankie. Gracefully. With aplomb.
Thank you so much Tallly. I love this. It is a commemorative "Never War Again" hankie; Tally knows my dad was a pilot with the RCAF during WW2. Such a wonderful thoughtful gift to send to me. It shall receive a special tatted edge.
