My First Order

It's all finished! Here is my first order for a doily.

The colors were requested to be as such and because this one is tatted with two shuttles I was happy to oblige. I quite like the completed look of it; it's given me the idea to do more two-toned doilies versus all one solid color. Isn't if funny though, now that it's all finished and ready to go, I find how attached to it I am. Like there is a little piece of me going off with it. Mostly because I remember the activities going on around the house while I was making it. But the customer is a dear friend's Aunt and I'm more then happy to share my tatted lace with her. So Bon Voyage! Off she goes!

Very pretty! I know that I was inspired to tat with two colors by reading one of Jon's blog entries. Just think... you are sharing a piece of you with someone who will enjoy your efforts!

P.S. - You're a Tulip crochet hook winner. Please send me your mailing info and I'll get it off to you.

Lovely doily, Allison. BTW, are you aware that you won a crochet hook from Lace Lovin' Librarian's giveaway?

Very pretty! I would have a hard time letting go of it too.

I just finished that one in Lizbeth Island Breeze and love the way it turned out-- but I never thought to do it in two colors the way you did. It turned out beautiful-- I may try doing another on similar to the way you did. It would be a learning experience for me as I have only been successfully tatting with a shuttle for a little over a year.

Hi Beelizabeth, Island breeze is one of my favorite colors! I'd love to see what you come up with for a two toned doily! Congrats on tatting for a year!

This is beautiful! Where did the pattern come from?

Allison said...

HI Tatterjil! This pattern is called Ice Crystal and is from the book titled 'Tatting Patterns and Designs' by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson. I did a blog post about the book that you can see here: http://tattingfarmchick.blogspot.com/2010/06/new-goodies.html
