Simple, simple.

Inspired by Fox's project, I decided it was time I also tackled a new hanky.  Seems like ages since I made one.  Mother-in-law will be pleased, she needs a new one for her collection.  But for a change from (one of!) my other current project which is the slightly more complicated butterfly doily, I fancied something really simple, with one shuttle only.

Here is what I started:

Ok, started counting again and this is motif 7 of second 25-motif challenge

I'm making holes with a large needle right on the edge of the hanky as I go along and attaching the little rings into the holes.  I don't often attach as I tat, but in this case, I thought it would work well.  I improvised the corner when I got to it and am only eyeballing the distance between the holes.  So, as you can see, this is a really "chilled out" project.  Easy.

Best wishes,


  1. That is going to be so wonderful when it's finished!!! It's already so beautiful! :)

  2. pretty colorway, pretty tatting, pretty hanky and pretty shuttle, pretty all around. looks fun to do.

  3. Beautiful...really like the hankie and the colors and your tatting is lovely, as always!

  4. Very nice! The thread is perfect for that sweet hankie. You will be done in no time - not like someone else, struggling with un-tatting every fourth repeat - in #80 yet!

  5. Simply beautiful! (even if it is beautifully simple)

    1. Hello Jess, did you see the previous post too?

  6. Beautiful, and a gorgeous colour, it's going to look gorgeous for her.
