First bit of joy(looks messy) is the start of the next doily I am tatting
(it's another secret-hopefully not to be found out this time!).
This is from Tatting Patterns by Mary Konior.
This is the most expensive book I have ever purchased, but I am so glad I did!!!
This doily is the Hostess Set Centerpiece. This is tatted in size 10 Lizbeth Turquoise Twist.
It is in desperate need of blocking!!! But I wait till the end cuz' I am going to wrinkle it up any way.
Next is most exciting and the major joy this week. I splurged with my Christmas money and bought this awesome gorgeous necklace from Yarnplayer. Notice necklace is neck lace???
This is so much more beautiful in real life, and I think it's the most elegant thing I own!!!
Hoping not to make Diane too jealous knowing her love of blue too(smiles). :)
Well...I hope your week has been far better than mine and that you have had plenty of wonderful tatting time!!! :)
