Marie's Margriet

Marie offered to test tat Margriet for me but I didn't expect such a gorgous result.  Well I sort of did as I've seen her work and it is always stunning but having worked this pattern in a plain colour I just didn't appreciate how stunning it could look with a little more thought.  THANKS Marie.

Marie also added another round to the doily andI think it sets it off beautifully.  I would never have thought of that!!!

These are the colours that she used.  Lizbeth, size 20 in Elderberry Jam (177) and Raspberry Pink Lt (623).

HOT OFF THE PRESS - an update to this post.  Marie said she entered her doily in the county fair and received 1st place and "Best of Class."  See picture below.

Happy days, Marie and congratulations.

Thanks, again, Jane for letting me be you test-tatter. I looooved this doily. Love the spirals, love picots and the challenge! This one, I'm keeping.

I'm so pleased to see this post! Beautiful work and well-deserved ribbons. Marie is quite a tatting ambassador in her part of the country, and I'm not sure that the folks there are aware of having a tatting master in their presence. She was always attending weekly 'markets' and offering tatting lessons. She is very humble about all her talents and artistry, so I'm delighted to see these ribbons acknowledging her skills!
