Yes, I have managed to manoeuvre the puzzle of a Land of Laces piece into a couple of repeats, after about fifteen miserablely failed beginnings. Must be a holiday gift from my beneficent tatting Muse, to whom I offer sincere thanks. Isn't it soooo pretty?
The thread is Lea's #50. Superb.
If I'm fortunate, I shall be able to complete the six more needed repeats of the hankie border. Maybe I'll have enough of Lea's wonderful thread to finish. That's a big maybe, as there isn't much left in the bobbin.
Also 50 meters of #50 thread.
