Tatting has been set aside in the last few weeks as I have been doing a little bit of sewing. Lately I have looked at hundreds of dresses in the shops but little have impressed me either in style or material. I even dragged Jane around the shops when I visited her the other weekend! So I decided to make my own, finding a brand new pattern stuffed in a drawer was a good start. The material I bought in Indonesia last year and it seemed to go with the style of the pattern.
This is the result and yes it is in the suitcase ready to go to Singapore!
So is this brooch
I have just come back from a meal at the Bishop of Winchester's Palace where I met another Bishop's wife who was so interested in the tatted necklace I was wearing. We then had a conversation about tatting for she had never heard of the craft. I told her to look for this blog I do hope she finds it.
