satisfaction

I've a little collection of handmade hankies, the tatted ones done by me.

Edgings are the best way to learn a new technique, about one meter of exercise, tatting and retro tatting, then a great satisfaction when you look at the first and the last elements close together, realising that you did it!

That red and green edging was my very first attempt to a "big" project with clunies, pattern is online, copyrighted by Stephanie Peters: http://www.sandbenders.demon.co.uk/tatting/clunymot.htm


Many thanks for her beautiful pattern, I love it, she recommends her designs have to be reproduced for personal use only, not sold. That is for utterly personal use: sometimes I take it out of the box just to gaze at it, enchanted!

Ciao,
Ninetta
