Fun To Trade and Got back From The Fair!

Had a wonderful time opening up this treasure from Ninetto's
Chiacchierion Facilissimo!

we talked months ago and we finally got around to a swap:)
her blog is here

Her tatting is also very fine and delicate, like many tatters out there, this is wonderful to see in person and these beads are special I have never seen some with two holes, my mind is racing with possibilities:)
I love boats, and this is hand painted scene is on papyrus paper! There is silk thread (never tired silk before!) antique and some on a yellow shuttle that will now become apart of my collection too!
I am enjoying and having fun! Thank you!

I know you have seen the doily and collar before:)
I removed the collar from my dress to enter in the fair
and with Renulek's patterns both items won me first place
Thank You :)


Does any one recognize this bonnet?  It is from "Tatting Patterns" by Julia Sanders.
Even though this pattern is 99 years old this Julia or a friend did a first place job on this pattern it looks well fitted too.
I did get pictures of the fair items and will show them shortly was done with different camera, and have to figure out how to place it here!

    1. Thank You about the fair, it was a smaller local one very little tatting was entered, I think we all won a ribbon of some sorts.
      I will be sleeping and dreaming of what I make it is so exciting!

    1. Thank You, this was my first time ever at a fair too, but it was a few local counties fair, not the state fair, I may not have done so well had there been more contenders :) There was a bonnet that was pretty and would have beat me but she entered under the wrong category. Good luck with yours let us know what happens
