Doyley and Runner




It has been a long time since I posted, but I have been tatting during that time - just not the time or the opportunity or the organisation to take photos. The doily was tatted from a pattern in the antique archives. The colours include Lizbeth 40 Vineyard Harvest, Azalea, Leaf Green, and one of the purple shades. Can't help wondering if it would have looked better in cream.


The runner is 97cm (approx 38 ins) long by 35 cm (approx 13-1/2 ins) wide and is done in 40 Lizbeth Seashells. I have done it from a picture on the net, the site for which has now gone and with my own stitch counts. It is a simple motif of six clovers separated by chains, but the motifs are joined diagonally instead of side by side, thus eliminating the need for a "fill in" motif. This results in the ends being scalloped. I chose not to put an edging on it, as I like the scalloped effect, and I couldn't think of an edging that would enhance this.

Welcome back to blogging. And I have yet to return to tatting. One of my long term project is to make a table runner (well a top but a girl can dream)using a snowflake pattern. Nothing to show since I am busy preparing for a quilting workshop in November.
