Bravo!! It looks just amazing! Congrats.
Just stunning. What a work of art! So pleased for you.
When I first saw this doily in Sherry Townsend's blog years ago, I was totally in awe - both of the designer Ben Fikkart and of Sherry's gorgeous rendition. I couldn't begin to figure out how the design was put together! I enlarged a photo of it and put it in a special notebook under the title 'Olympics of Tatting', and would look at it in wonder!. I truly doubt that I ever will tat it, but it's been fascinating to follow along with those of you who took on the challenge! . I missed your post on the day of the Grand Reveal, but am so thrilled at your triumph! It's breathtaking to look at! What really blows me away is that you used size 80 thread. And the color combination is so perfect! Surely you will enter this in a Fair. They really should have gold medals in addition to ribbons, as it's truly an Olympic feat!
Thanks, Kathy. What a wonderful comment. The comments from all Tatters make me very, very happy and proud of my work. Thank you all!Fox : )
Fox, this is absolutely gorgeous! And in a size 80, it is so delicate looking.
