I was asked by a friend to do a puppy quilt for her friend. I gave her a couple of puppy pictures but she was not OK with them, came back with this one. I had to enlarge it a lot . It is hand sewn. using blanket stitch.

Charnwood tatting day is 16 October. We have a project table ,this year it's tatted baskets, here are a couple I've done. One is the seahorse dragon doily pattern, but I've missed one section out to create a basket, the other is Jane's wedding favour basket. Both are worked with Lizbeth thread one 20 and one 10. I have just started using Lizbeth thread and love working with it, also love that if you do happen to do a ring wrong its easy to undo, much better than Altin basak. Think it's a bit more silkier and so slides more.
