Present from th Lace Lovin' Librarian

Just the other day (fortunately before Canada Post locked out their employees), I received a hankie in the mail from Diane, the Lace Lovin' Librarian.  A couple weeks ago she had a giveaway of some of her vintage hankies for interested tatters, and I asked for one and she sent it to me!  I am very excited, it should be fun tatting my first hanky edging!  Here are some photos of the pretty hankie:

 Note the pretty card she sent it in....

And a close-up of the design- yellow is such a happy colour, which is why I picked this hankie.

Now to find the right thread and pattern!  (The pattern will probably be easier- no one sells tatting thread in my area!)

Have a great day everyone, Laivine

  1. I'm glad your hanky arrived in time! Even when thread is readily available, it's not always easy to find the right color. When in doubt... use white! : )

    I hope you enjoy tatting an edging for your hanky!
