A week or so ago, Sherry asked me if I had any plans for the motifs I've been working on... and I had no plan! This morning I woke up and thought, why not sew the motifs onto the 4" squares made on my Weavette loom? I joined the Square Deal Weave-Along, which started yesterday. I had already decided to make 3 of each square (one blanket for each of the grandchildren). I like the tatted motif on the plain weave square on the left, but the motif on the right seems lost in the Windowpane Lace. Maybe I should just try different colored thread for the tatting... I have plenty to choose from!
I could abandon the blanket idea and join squares to make cute little bags... plain weave squares with tatting motifs attached on one side, patterned square on the other side. I'm starting to get the hang of making the cording for Romanian Point Lace... I could use that for the strap... just like Teri Dusenbury! Have you seen her bags and hats? They're wonderful!
