If you love tatted lace, jewellery, plants and anything handcrafted, come back often.
I will regularly post items that are made by me, plants that I grow and interesting things that I photograph.
It's so beautiful! It seems as though you began it just the other day, and it's finished already!
Just about fell off the chair! I was not expecting this as I thought there would be a picture of your painting escapades! WOW! This is truly sensational.Is that the book we used before or another? After the doilies...?Fox
That's beautiful. I like the contrast between the airy flowers and the solid leaves, and the swirly look of the whole piece.
I love it! love the leaves, the colours... great job!
I like it, it a gorgeous pattern even though it has a lot of open spaces but i think that's the joy of the pattern.Well done beautiful matMargaret
It does like a 2D bouquet! I really like it! :o)
This turned out wonderful. Karen in OR
Fresh as a daisy! This "mat" is exquisite. (I didn't dare say doily. These days it is almost a hateful word.) I agree with Maureen: it seems as though you whipped this up in a mere two or three days.How long did it take?
It did not take long to tat. The flowers are quick to tat. All in all it took me about a week. And this pattern is in the same book as the Tischband pattern.Thank you all for your lovely comments.
This photo jumps off the page, and your tatting is so perfect!This is very pleasing to the eye and quite unusual for a tatted piece! But then, Ruth definitely has a very unique sense of design and shows how versatile tatting can be! She apparently used tatting to 'mimic' Irish crochet. I'm curious about her own tatting history and how she developed this style. You definitely helped to introduce her to many tatters, with the Tischband tat-along. The color threads today very much enhance her designs!
