This doily (#9083) is tatted from a pattern from the 1946 edition of the J & P Coats Tatting Magazine #229. I have tatted this up using some very old thread (don't know whether it quilifies as vintage itself) that I got from a lady after she died. The ball still had the price tag on it of $.25 USD! :-O It is Clark's Big Ball size 30, color #37. The finished doily measures 10.5" across.
- I have been a crafter of all sorts for many years, and really love working with Paper and Threads. I am loving the design work I am doing now. I really seem to be getting back into my "art", even if I am doing it by computer now, instead of actually getting dirty while drawing. ;-) I have been avid about Thread Arts since I was a kid, learning to Crochet at 7, then Knit, Embroider, Needle Lace and finally Needle Tat. I love to design as well and am looking forward to taking the Needle Tatting that further step as well.
