St Georges Day, and Happy Easter



Hi,

Happy St Georges Day.

Also Happy Birthday to Gary our step son.

This is a scheduled post as I will be at my usual craft fair in Frome, which again this month my husband Vernon will be doing for me as long as I sit and only answer technical questions, he does not do technical.

During the week Jane of "Tatting and not a lot else" did a post about a piece of tatting she had found, she had been reading my mind or two great minds think alike as I found a piece of tatting at the bottom of my basket that I keep all my knitting needles in.

I have washed it and looked at it and found the pattern. I have no idea when I did this tatting but its found "Tatting in Lace" by Mary Konior, published in 1988. I know I brought this book soon after it was published I can only say I tatted this piece in the late 1988's
I think the thread is by Anchor and is gold and orange no 20 I have none left so I cant look at the ball to tell you exactly what it is, which is a pity as I did love this thread. The pattern you ask is Rose Garden
and Windmills put together to make a doily.

As the cloth is not finished perhaps one day I will try and either match up the thread with something similar or try and see if they make this thread any more and then sort it out and finished it.

I still like the pattern and putting two patterns together make this piece different.


I would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter and hope the weather stays this beautiful for the holiday, until we meet again in blog land Take care

Hugs

Margaret
