A new project

A friend along the road has a lovely old table and we were chatting the other day and she said she'd like a tatted cloth for it.
I took along the selection of green balls of thread that I have and she chose what would fit in well with her kitchen.  

As the table is rectangular that's the shape she asked for and so I've returned to an old favourite of mine - the Fandango doily  This is pretty straightforward to do when out and about and chatting.  

First picture of progress below.

Finally the final skirt post

Well I wore the skirt and found that I wasn't happy with the pocket.  It was too big and slightly in the wrong place so when I got home out came the scissors!!!
Now I can assure you I had enough fabric to make matching pockets but (as you know by now) that's not the 'Jane way'!!!!  So here is the final pocketed skirt along with a photo to prove it really does have a lining too!!!

The finished Coats doily

Here it is in all it's 'glory'.  Actually before anybody asks I will tell you where it is now - yes, in a box in a cupboard never to see the light of day again!!!!
Some details.  The cloth was made in size 40 Coats thread (old balls that have been hanging around for years) and measures around 23" in diameter.  The pattern is in a Coats leaflet (number 684) which can still be found occasionally online.

I do have another project on the go to take with me to craft groups etc and will show you that another day.

The penultimate skirt post

Well here it is in all it's 'glory'.  Made for nothing except what I had lying around the house and some lining fabric I found in a charity shop.

Everything I have in the way of clothes has to have pockets so the skirt had to have one too!!!
