I have scaled it down a bit with shorter chains and now I just need to come up with a corner for it. The thread is Purple Iris Fusion with Leaf Green Med.
This pretty edging can be found in many vintage publications, one of them being the Tatter's Treasure Chest. I first made a hanky with it some years ago (photo below), then a doily for my mother-in-law (can't find a picture of that one at the moment) and then I liked it so much I made another doily for our house too.
I've still got the Mystery Doily on the go too and am now tatting the third round. But I felt I needed something else "lighter" to work on at the same time. And of course, in the background there is also the Butterfly Doily! Oh yes, fear not, I will get to the end eventually!
Oh, and I have just uploaded another video on how to cover a plastic (or metal) ring with tatting. This was one of the requests I had when I asked what videos people would like me to make. I hope you'll find the sound is a bit better on this one. I still find the talking business difficult though... it seems simple but it's not that easy to continuously speak clearly and make sure all your words make sense and describe well what you are doing! I mumble a bit occasionally and as you can see, generally, I've a long way to go! I won't be hired as a BBC presenter any time soon!
