First of all I want to say thank you for all your comments on the Jan Stawasz doily - that was the most comments I ever got so far (in my very short blogging career)!
But I can't stay idle for too long, can I! So now the doily is done and dusted, I have returned my attention to this lovely handkerchief sent to me by Michelle.
After contemplating my first effort, I decided I was not happy with the edging I'd chosen or with the colours. Whilst looking through a book for something else, I saw this edging which I thought would look better (in the Tatter's Treasure Chest). But then I couldn't decide on the best colour.
The ladies at In Tatters have kindly contributed their opinions to my dilemma and at the moment, the variegated green is winning on votes with the yellow a close second!
There were more suggestions to try other colours as well but these are the ones I have available at the moment so it's a choice between the colours in the photo above.
As far as I'm concerned, the darker pink and the dark green have been ruled out. The yellow I tried at Fox's suggestion and I do like it.
This handkerchief has some "tricky" inward curves which are requiring modifying the pattern to fit the curves. I've just worked it out with a couple of single shuttle split rings, I think it will look ok.
... to be continued.
