OK, OK!! I know it has been AGES since my last post, but that doesn't mean that I haven't been tatting....it simply means that I have been tatting surprises that I cannot blog about. But at last I have been able to do something I CAN talk about. This little display is for my next-door neighbour, Sue, who is an absolute treasure to me. She bought the red thread from a car-boot sale for just a few pence...didn't even really know if it was suitable for tatting....but got it anyway. She just happened to drop on to Coates vintage thread (size 20) in perfect condition and who better to tat it up for than for Sue herself. She isn't the doily type of person but loves this sort of thing.
