Tat's Fair, too













Three tatted doily entries -- two of which have been on the blog before. The pair of "Anemone Sylvestris" from Iris Niebach's book Fantasia 2 were entered as a dresser set/table runner. "Milena" is from Iris's Tatted Doilies made in Yarnplayer's "Rhubarb Crisp" hand-dyed-thread. All of the comment cards mentioned the beautiful color (thanks Marilee!). The last one is "Lucky Clover" from Tatting Patterns and Designs by Blomqvist and Persson. It was made within the last two months just for the Fair. It's made of one strand of white sewing cotton and one strand of Signature machine embroidery thread. None of the pictures I took manage to show the subtle color changes though (one even looked a nasty yellow) -- so here's a partial image I scanned.

I've made the Lucky Clover. It's hard to get those long chains in the center to lie nicely. You did a good job on that.

Super super doileys, the subtle colours in the white one are lovely, and do show up. Well done.
