|Remember the Victorian wash cloth, I found a princess that loved playing with and using it :)click on this for pattern remember to scroll down a little bit !|
|It works, and my granddaughter made me happy, the way she carried it around and treated this very special :)|
|Next round done, but if you look close (on left side), I didn't realize till I took picture...|
|my thread was tainted what horror, and it's on inside of ball every so often.|
|Over half done and this round is easier than last! It is down right fun.|
Arggghhhh! You got the tainted thread! So sorry!ReplyDelete
Love the washcloth - What a cutie-pie.
Big one looking marvellous... : )
Most of the time I tat in dim light and so this is why it went so unnoticed. My granddaughter really studied this piece and carried it with her all day, It was a good feeling. ThanksDelete
How sweet to have someone so young treasure your tatting!!! :)ReplyDelete
I hope there's enough good thread to finish your bonnet!!
Your doily is looking so beautiful!!! :)
Me too I will have to go to all kinds of places to find something that matches.Delete
Thanks so much :)
How aggravating! All that work to have to take out. Doesn't it make you feel all warm and fuzzy having the granddaughter like that (beautiful) washcloth so much? Love that colorful doily. It is getting quite large.ReplyDelete
Thank You, and yes it makes me happy she loved it.ReplyDelete
Oh, the wash cloth has such a warm cozy lovable home :-)ReplyDelete
Is there no way to get rid of the spots .... Some washing procedure (a localised spot check) that might work? Of course, if it is a gift, then one does need it to be perfect. Hope you find a good solution.
I was wondering if I should try to bleach it out, not really sure what it is , but it does look like it is from the manufacturer. Of course I will try that first before cutting.Delete
Occhi is so wonderful handicraft!ReplyDelete
Thank You Crissi :)Delete
The cute and lovely story of the washcloth and its princess, it cheered you up after that "drama"! I quite dislike white thead, too much delicate and look how you lay that beautiful coloured doily on the ground? But white has a certain appeal, I hope you have sufficient thread, it's lovely.ReplyDelete
Yes, you are right, I do not work with it very much and have a little black dog too but I can go over any tatting with tweezers and take a black hair out.Delete
Molto belli i tuoi lavori! Tuo nipote è un bimbo meraviglioso!ReplyDelete
Oh Thank You so much!Delete
Your granddaughter is clearly a person of good taste! Could you overdye the doily when it's finished? With tea perhaps? How very annoying after all the work you have already put in.ReplyDelete
That is a really good idea if, If i can not get it out, I will do that, I do like the aged look that a tea stain would give it!Delete
How frustrating to find out the thread is marked. hope there's enough to finish. Your large doily is so pretty, and getting huge. Ah, how sweet your DGD is, and what a good feeling that she loved your tat!ReplyDelete
It really is she made me very happy, carefully looking at it, I am so going to teach her how to tat :)Delete
What a shame to find a stain on the thread, I agree with Jane perhaps a little dye might cover the bits. So frustrating I feel so sorry after all the work you put in.ReplyDelete
Your mat is looking so colourful and lovely.
Your grand daughter has good taste she will be a tatter too one day.
Oh that is a nice thing to say, and I agree that she has excellent taste too :)ReplyDelete
You are tatting that Spring Doily so fast - looks great! It is a nice pattern. Love the washcloth story and that sweet entertainer of yours. The little ones always make me smile.ReplyDelete
Thank you Cindy :)
This wash cloth is an amazing idea!ReplyDelete
I am always thinking about how to use one or another tatted piece, it is a perfect choise! Where did you find the pattern?
I posted it a while ago and should have done it again here it is https://tattinghomework.wordpress.com/category/2013/page/4/ReplyDelete
