Tis and Tat
I have been quiet on this blog though have been posting some on my Facebook page. I find it easier and faster to update my Facebook because I can do the on my phone compared to updating my blog, where I'll have to log-in on my laptop to do that.
My niece will be getting married next year, in syaa Allah. As with local traditions, there will be exchanges of dowry/gifts between the bride's and groom's family during the ceremony. I decided to make some edgings for the tray cloth for the trays that will hold the gifts. I picked a pattern by Mary Konior from her book, Tatting With Visual Patterns. I started sometime in June, needed to start early because there are seven trays in all. Finally finished tatting them in early November.
I will share pictures of the edgings when they are attached to the fabric for the tray cloth later when that is done and also how they are to be presented.
I stopped work on a Jan Stawasz project for this edgings. With the edgings done, I can go back to it. I started the JS Doily 1 from Tatting Theory and Patterns over a year ago, May 2020 to be exact. It is a no-rush kind of project, something that I don't mind putting down to work on an idea or another project. Now that I am between ideas, here is where I am with this.
