Done and dusted


Here it is - finally and utterly finished!!!  It IS square even though it looks as if it's not and that it gets smaller to the right of the photo!!!  Must've been the wonky person holding the camera that caused it to turn out like that.

The measurement of the whole thing is 17" square (before you ask in the comments section!!) and it hasn't been put away yet either.  In fact, believe it or not, it's actually sitting on an old chest of drawers in our front room!!!  No idea how long it'll stay there before I get fed up with it and put it in the box!!

Well, one of the several boxes where I put finished tatting!!

  9. Love it! What I have loved from the beginning and love more with each project, is how you embrace color so fully! No fear of color in you. No ma'am.

    I want to be like you when I grow up! *wink*

  14. Fabulous use of motifs, and would be such a great way to use and experiment with all the colorful threads available to us today! The edging worked out perfectly. This would be a 'Fair' winner, for sure!

  15. Love it...very vibrant and happiness inducing, the edging really makes the whole piece meld into a cohesive creation of color. A little like how a new box of crayons looks so perfect and lovely while held by the box...full of glorious color and perfect in the boxes embrace.
