Spanish Doll

The dressing, tatting and assembly ot this doll has taken me twelve months.  The object of the exercise is to
show how tatting can be used to decorate an item.  I have also done a fan for her, but haven't attached it
to her hand yet.  The picture doesn't show how her dress sweeps into a short train at the back, and also
the work on the mantilla doesn't show.  I have lost count of how many metres of black lace I tatted. 
It is satisfying to be finished, but also a relief.  Now I can get on with Christmas Tatting.
