This is the destiny the tatted laces and the centers of the doilies had. I think I should try to get better pictures of these. It’s a uniform for special occasions.


And here is a close up:



And this is the back belt, with the same pattern of the lace:


This is before ironing or anything!!

I’ve been busy with this but now that it’s over I can go back to my… pretty doily!!


Lace in progress 2.

This is a lace from N. Ellison “Lessons in Tatting”.

I include the pattern:

R: 4-4-4-4 RW

Ch: 3-3-3-3-3-3

Join to middle picot on ring

Ch: 3-3-3-3-3-3

R: 4-4+(join to middle picot on previous ring)4-4 RW

Ch: 23

swap shuttles

R: 3+(join to picot on previous chain)3-1-1-33

R: 3+(join to last picot on previous ring)3-1-1-33

R: 3+(join to last picot on previous ring)3-1-1-33

swap shuttles

Ch: 3+(join to last picot on previous ring)2

Repeat from the beginning.

 Notes: I prefer to swap shuttles also *before* 3rd chain (ch 2-3). And I’d do picots marked in red as very small picots.


Tatted edge in towel.

A blue lace in a towel for a present.


Design from N. Ellison, Lace edge no. 134, 1916.

Lace in progress.

This is one everyone knows. The basket lace is still in progress.
