What a SHOCK

A lady arrived at Crafternoon with a blouse that had a tiny hole in it and some marks. She'd been recommended by a lovely 91 year old friend who'd had a hole in a garment which I covered up with a tatted butterfly a month or two ago. 

The blouse is a beautiful silk one and so I first had to find some thread to work some 'magic' with. I found some silk sewing thread that I've had for years and years. Deciding what to tat was also hard but in the end I did a tiny flower like motif and a couple of butterflies. The pictures are below.

After I'd finished the project I decided to look up the designer's name on the label.  I nearly fell flat on my face when I found out that it's a VERY expensive range of clothes.  Glad I didn't know before I started or I'd have been even more nervous.  Just hope the lady likes it but if she doesn't I can easily snip it off.

  4. I think it's great too! Tatting has sooo many uses!! Thing is.... who is the designer? You gotta tell us otherwise we'll be feeling lost and disorientated and grumpy or summat like that!! VBG Or is it just the presence of 'british summer liquid sunshine' that's making me feel that way out??

    It has been clinically proved that tooth loses its quality as well as the age isn't a big factor
    for this. Orange coloured discolour is only the start discolour
    represents, now it could be cleaned served by
    normal elements. Checking this out will instill

  8. It's those touches, like handmade lace, that denote haut coutoure.
