Answer to the mess question!!!



Before I start today I just want to let anybody 'out there' who is taking part but hasn't sent in any pictures for the TIAS that if you're holding back for fear of privacy then please don't. 
I am very aware that some people don't want their names published and (as long as you tell me on each submission) then I will totally respect that. You could send in as just 'anonymous' or just invent a name for yourself. I NEVER pass on any email addresses to anybody unless asked to and then I would contact BOTH parties before doing it. I'm a great respecter of people's wishes.
Also even if English isn't your first language then please send things in - I use 'Google Translate'.

OK now for the answer to the mess I showed you here!!!  It's a hanky edging.  Actually there's a bit of a story behind this.  At the teacher's meeting before last Tat Days we were handed a goodie bag with some lovely goodies inside along with a handkerchief.  This had been added to the bag by Georgia (I think!) to become part of this year's scholarship fundraiser for 2013.  We were asked to add an edging to it - so I did!!!  The hanky is now back at Georgia's house for her to do whatever she's plotting with it.

Jane - what size thread is the rubber chicken edging? - I'm thinking about wedding hanky patterns. It looks really beautiful - but it was also good as a chicken.....

You are funny, Maureen!!!! I haven't got the hanky now but in a size 40 it measures a tad over 3/4". In a size 80 it must be under that. I should've measured it first, eh?

Darn! I was so sure it was a dragon tangled in a net! ;-)

It looks much prettier as a hanky edging!

That pretty mess turned out to be a lovely hanky.

Glad you sorted the mess out, I think I would have given up. I HATE sewing on edgings. I have to join them on as I go. It works fine for hankies but maybe I shouldn't start on a table cloth!
