The Lace Mat Gallery

A showcase of the Lace Mats 

These are the photos of the Lace Mats that I have received in the course of the Lace Mat tat-along and poll conducted to close the year 2012.  As you can see when you scroll down, all the tatters who participated did a wonderful job.  I wish to thank everyone who took this journey with me where along the way I have received from tatters that I only know for the first time.

The poll picked Lace Mat No. 34 by Marha Ess as the top choice, and I think everyone would agree with it.  From the responses I received, I know that it was difficult to pick the best lace mat by just looking at photos on the screen, and they are all really beautiful tatting which made it even harder to choose.  So I think everyone deserves applause for a job well done.
