PIF from Little Jackdaw's Nest

I was totally caught off guard when I received it. I was expecting a lovely handmade gift from Little Jackdaw's Nest. I have always admired her impeccable tatting. Her amazing doilys always look so gorgeous. Well, I have one now. I am just speechless. The tatting is exquisite and this is going on my dresser as the dark wood of the dresser would not only compliment the tatting but also show it off. Imagine that I have never thought of putting any tatting on my dresser until I saw this. This photo does not do this doily justice.

And that was not all in the package she sent. Imagine all these lovely hand dyed threads for me. Thank you so much, Elena.


  1. Wow that is gorgeous, I am sure you will enjoy that doily for many years to come.


  2. Oh how beautiful!! What a wonderful accent for your dresser! :)
    And such pretty threads! :)

  3. Drool*** That is lovely! I get a kick out of double triple picots.

    Oh, and by the way, I LOVE the bookmark you sent. I've never been a fan of those blocks of chains, but they look so cool in real life. Not all chunky clunky. I may have to try some. Thanks you so much!

  4. Very nice doily!! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the treads. Karen in OR
