First Hanky Edging - WIP
There is a first for everything. It all began with Fox and Diane's blog posts on beautifully tatted edgings for hankies. I always hesitated to edge anything because it is just a lot of work. But the end product must be worth it.
I started this edging after I went out to buy a few handkerchiefs to edge. Then Diane so generously gave away some beautiful handkerchiefs. I was so happy to receive one which I will post to show you. Thank you Diane.
The edging above is from Susanne Schwenke's Spitzen Ideen book on pp 6. Tatted using 2 shuttles, I used Venus Size 40 threads in Col. 678. I will post it when it is completed.
