Quan Yin

Sure enough, I ran out of thread! I am not sure how that happened as I cut off part of a row, but not that much.  Seems there should have been way more.

The size is right for what I wanted so, the last row isn't all that necessary.

This is to go under my Mom's soapstone statue of Quan Yin, Goddess of Compassion and Mercy, which is now entrusted to my care.

I have always had a bit of tatting under this statue, since I inherited it four years ago. I liked the blue colour and a rectangle  shape for a change.

Now, on to another 4" cotton doily, for MiniBoss Maeve in #80 Girly Girl Pink! 


  1. Oh yes, it's fine like that, perfect for the statue.

  2. My mother had one of these statues! - and I have had it since her death in 2002. She spent some years growing up in China. Mine is wooden, though, and the goddess is standing. Yours looks very elegant on the rectangular blue mat.

  3. It,s perfect! Just right for under the statue! I love it and your harmonious colors!

  4. The blue looks wonderful with that statue, and it's just the right size and shape. What a lovely mat!

  5. Perfect! One of the things I like about that doily is that it can be stopped at any time. I'm looking forward to your next tatting adventure!

  6. That blue mat is perfect, I love the colour and the way it sits on the mat.
    Well done a gorgeous mat for a gorgeous statue
    Love to Mr G
