WOW...Its done....





After 5 full shuttles and one whole week! This pattern was taken from the Helping Hands Newsletter Winter 2009. This pattern attaches as you go. No sewing on later. I love it the idea of: when you're done...you're done!

I used Lizbeth size 20 thread and color # 111, Candy Candy.

Wow, congratulations on a beautiful handkerchief edging. This is so pretty. I'm also glad to see this color tatted up. I wasn't sure how it would look, and seeing it, I really like it. Now I have to get it. LOL!! Thank you!

I love it! Only 5 shuttles full? I'd have guessed a whole lot more. Hmmm... I wonder where I put those hanky blanks?

Linda said...

Thank you! It was so fun to do, I have started on a 2nd one, but with a different edging...stay tune.

Wonderful job on the edging. Beautiful thread colors, and the corners are perfect! I'm curious how you worked that out since the holes in the hanky might not work out mathematically with the pattern.

A folded handkerchief with tatted edging always looks exquisite.

I think you tatted this up pretty quickly!

That is a beautiful edging. I wished I could do it (yes I can but it will take months/maybe years.

Carla said...

It's wonderful! Congratulations!

Hello Nancy, Hello from Michigan it has been awhile. Love the new look of your blog. The colors are fantastic. The tatted edges are truly beautiful. I see the pool is empty did you ever get it fixed for the ducks to swim again. vbg Hugs Judy

Did you find the hankies at a reasonable price?

If so, how much would a hankie be, if one could acquire "said" hankie with tatting from an interested party??? What a sentence. Please don't analyze the content as to grammar, which is "not" proper...
