Another Dora finished.


Do you remember that waaaaaay back in the summer I decided I needed an 'on the go' project? No?  Well here's a link to the start of that journey which started back last July. It's travelled a few miles since then and has been backwards and forwards to craft groups back here in the UK a few times too!!! 

After all these motifs I'm STILL not tired of this wonderful little design by Dora Young.  The book can be found easily from most tatting suppliers and it’s called The All New Knotless Tatting Designs.  In fact here’s a link to get it directly from the lass who put the new version together.

I've added two pictures today but neither really show up what it really looks like in 'real life'. The 'rounds' are done in cream and white alternately. I've also added an edging to the final round just to hold it a bit better. It's worked in size 40 thread which is another detail I normally forget to tell you!!!

Beautiful, so proud of you to complete the large version! My largest was 7 motifs.

It's unusual to see such a " solid" piece in tatting, it 's full of impact, visually. But I can't see the edging, could you explain how you did that?

Thanks, everybody.
Maureen - I did the edging like the rest but made the first round with picots and the second very carefully without. Just had to keep remembering not to make a picot!!! BC3 kept forgetting!!!
