The first two were sent to me by Michelle of Tela Magistrae. I've not pictured everything but her box also contained lots of other little gifts, what a lovely surprise. Both hankies are gorgeous but because I've done a lot of blue lately, I decided I would start with the pink one. As you can see, I found in my box that I already had some nice threads that will go well with it. Now I just need to decide on the edging. I'm thinking something fairly simple as the hanky already has a lovely shape and beautiful, colourful flowers.
Thank you, thank you Michelle!
The other was sent to me by Diane, the great Lace-lovin' Librarian. I had seen a picture of it and dared to buy threads before it even got here. I'm pretty pleased with my guesses as I could use any of the three colours of thread that arrived today, at the same time as Diane's hanky. Love the bright colours on this one, I don't know why but it makes me think of Spain.
Thank you, thank you Diane!
Now, I have to be good and try to finish some of the ongoing projects before I start too many new ones.
So you see, I'm spoiled for choice! And so grateful for the wonderful people I've met through tatting and the internet.
