I'm afraid I've got no "evidence" (photos) to show for it as I was just too busy looking, tatting and chatting!
I got a basket mould from Linda which I look forward to showing you in another post. Linda had asked me to bring Ice Queen as she wanted to see it "in the flesh" because she wants to tat it. I didn't have one ready made (I gave them all away) so I brought my things to make her one during the day - though of course, as it turned out, I didn't spend that much time tatting so wasn't able to complete it. BUT, when I got there I realised I'd forgotten to bring the beads that I needed for the centre. Undeterred, I decided to tat Ice Queen without and see how it turned out. I just finally finished it this morning. Not bad I think. The bugle beads are essential to the design but you could definitely do without the centre beads. And this is what it looks like:

It now makes me wonder about reversing the centre shape so that the whole design could be tatted in one pass.... Mmmm.... yes, that would be good. I do so like "one-pass" designs. I'll give that some thought.
And a bit more progress on the rectangle doily... just a bit!
Life feels somewhat hectic at the moment.
