Split Chain Doily Set

Here is the pink set completed. It turns out that my neighbour is not really into delicate lacy things so I shall keep this as a "stock" item to give as a present to someone else in the future.
This is my next project - a square motif that can be put together as often as the tatter wishes. The first square was not quite right, but I was pleased when only my second attempt worked very well. I am now in the process of photographing the motifs as I make them so that I can produce a pattern for them. The 4 squares above have not been pressed and so do not look as good as they could. When I have completed the pattern I will post a better picture.

The pink set will make a wonderful gift for someone. After that much work, it should definitely go to someone who will appreciate it and enjoy it. I love your square. My favorite part of squares is the shape that is created where they come together and I really like this one. At first glance and unblocked, it has a 3d effect there that really appeals to me, too. I can easily imagine one of your 3d blossoms at the center.

I love the pink set! Square motifs intrigue me, and I love the fact that they can be joined to create a larger square or a rectangle.

The pink set looks gorgeous, what a pity she will miss out of owning such a beautiful piece but as she does not like pretty things its her loss.
Your square motifs looks lovely I am looking forward to seeing how it works out.

What a pretty set! Pink can be such a fantastic color all tatted up! Love the idea of a square motif; reminds me of a quilt! Happy Easter!

Wow -- I wish you were MY neighbor. That's a beautiful dresser set. The square motifs are really interesting. I like motifs that can be joined to make bigger things.

I just love the square one, and the color it's done in also. Everything seems to be round, so lately I like the square and oval ones. The thread used is very neat/rich looking also. I know I've seen this before, and probably put a similar note by it to...
