The Lace Mat (#18)

Like so many others I joined the tat-a-long  that Jon Yusoff started of the Norma Benporath Lace mat.  Here is my mat.
The Lace Mat size 10 white
finished size 27cm or 10 1/2 inch 

 I like how the rewriting of these patterns encourages us to look again at the old patterns and to try them. Thank you Jon.  Now I think I will go back and make some more snowflakes from Tina's books.

Serindipitious Edging (motif #17)

At Damien's School as the final year is such a small class, the students invite their parents to come to formal as well.  For this night I purchased a 3/4 sleeve royal purple dress to wear.  It was a bit plain so I edged the neckline in tatting.  I used Jess's Serindipity HDT size 40 to create a colour splash with the same pattern as motif #9.
this realy needs some more colour
