Hot off the shuttles!
Here it is! I am thrilled with my second Primrose Path doily! I'm glad I paid attention to where the color change occurred when I started each motif. I think it makes a big difference. I would show it next to the first doily, but my friend Nancy asked me for a doily to hold an angel planter that was given to her as a get well gift. She's been ill since February, and I'm glad she asked me for one of my tatted doilies.
Dave noticed that I was having trouble finding a place to photograph my tatting, so he made this table for me. He got the idea from a table he saw at a floral shop. He helped cut a tree down at a friend's house last fall, and he spirited the wood pieces into the basement without my knowledge. I never go down to the basement any more, so he knew the project would remain a secret! He surprised me with it on Sunday. I'll have to practice taking pictures in different lighting, so I guess I'd better keep tatting!
I think this may be the perfect home for my newly finished doily. The colors go well with my little creamer from Tom Jones Pottery. Hmm... maybe I should have dusted first!
