First off, thank you all for your comments yesterday! :-* I got some great ideas and really can't thank you all enough for your encouragement. I have an on-line "to do" list about five miles long, but, hopefully, I'll get to send some responses tonight. :-* Thank you!!!
So, what do I have for show today? Another fan! ;-) By the time I got the third round done, my brain was a bit stuck on calling this one "Gothic Elegance". It's rather sloppy, but I'm glad I got it done! :-) It's done in LizBeth black and 670 with Cebelia white, all in size 20 (and I think I'm right in my thought that Cebelia 30 looks better with LizBeth 20...).
I couldn't figure out a color for the background, so you get your choice.
Currently [unblocked], it measures around 4" by 4".
One more I thing that I think deserves a mention: Notice the ends! There's less than half of what I had yesterday!!! :-D Why, you ask? LOL. Well, a while back, I tried to "tat over" my ends when starting them. It worked, but I figured that there was a good reason I never saw it any instructions or anything. Then, I was reading Lady Shuttermaker's Blog the other day and she said "tat over tail". Of course, this delighted me and, well, I went back to it. :-D I also sewed in some ends --my first time!!! I'll sew in the rest tomorrow, maybe ...or when I figure out what in the world I'm going to do with this fan! LOL. I definitely think these make better wall decorations than doilies ...Could just be me.
Well, that's enough of my rambling! Hope you are all happy, safe, and having fun! :-*
Not quite tatting!!
