Hanky Edging #6 - Completed
I have been tatting 3 hanky edgings since August. I have finally finished all three edgings. Previous post on this was here and here. This handkerchief was given to me by Gina of Threads of a Tatting Goddess from this post here. This hanky is embroidered on all 4 corners with pink roses. They are so pretty. Thank you Gina!
I chose this edging No. 8 pattern from Kirstine Nikolajsen and Inge Lise Nikolajsen's 'Tatted Handkerchiefs' book and adpated it to fit the scallops on this hanky. I love how the edging ruffles. The first photo shows the edging which I pinned and blocked straight but it looked a little strange so I washed the hanky again and let the edging dry naturally. Does it look better?
And Isdihara, I did notice tatting in the Downton Abbey ladies' collar. Do you think they would feature my tatting-edged hanky? Now, that would be a dream!!
Thank you for all your lovely comments for Hanky Edging #5. I will definitely think about them when I tat the next edging. Diane, it may be sometime next year.
