Coincidence

I was cruising around the tatting blogs tonight and came across the exact same doily as the one I just fixed for my friend, except this one was tatted very recently, while the one I worked on was probably tatted about fifty years ago. It was tatted by Kelly Dunn and is posted as Motif #16 on her blog. I was so surprised to see it! She mentions it is from "The Tatter's Treasure Chest," which is of course a compilation of older tatting books from the 40's. I guess the doily I fixed was probably tatted from the original tatting book. :-)

Small piece of eye candy! This was a special order and is my own pattern, which I call "snowflake". I love these two colors together - sage & lavender.

Your exquisite tatting, placement of beads, and colors of threads/beads are always PERFECT! What a talent you have! Takes my breath away just looking at all your creations. It would seem to me that stringing the beads takes as much patience as the tatting! Sorry to hear about your Boye shuttle!

Hi Glad you stopped by my blog and saw the doily. I can not imagine trying to repair that doily but to repair one that may be so much older. Good for you. I must say that even before I started blogging I always stopped at you blog. Your tatting is so beautiful!!!! Kelly
