I’ve cranked another one out! Last one, I promise…
Auntie Marion’s daughter, who wins ribbons for her tatting at the big Melbourne show, saw what I made the other night, and offered a trade. She’d teach me to tat if I made her one for herself. Considering how expert she is, it was an offer too good to resist. So I gave her free rein with my blue fabrics and she chose a nice formal floral print in polished cotton. Four of us are meeting for coffee this morning, and I wanted to get it ready in time for that.
It’s the same design as before, varying only slightly in size; I’ve used batting scraps, and it’s a great way to chew those up in a constructive way, but you have to work with what you have. Also, this fabric would be difficult to feature in any quilts I have planned in the near future, so I’m happy it’s getting used.
Now all I have to do is work out when I can have a lesson or two!
