Welcome to my place where I share my tatting, painting, paper and fabric creations. I love to experiment with many elements and to take photos of my little corner of the world. I do hope you enjoy your visit.

I began the next edging in "Tatting Patterns and Designs". 'Ingeborg' was tatted with a blue varigated DMC thread, size 80. This pattern can also be used as an insertion and is very easy and simple repeats of chains that are joined.
It appears quite delicate and pretty, but I thought it to be a little 'thin.'
Perhaps two rows together might look nice.
But joining them at the picots might lose that laciness.
So I joined them with a double row of stitches
Yuck! Too messy, and the joins are not even. So, perhaps just joining the centre picots on the rows might have worked better. So much for my idea.
The original pattern is cute, though, and it was easy to follow the directions. Now, to cut off that joining piece........
