News alert! Many of you have prayed for my son, Calen, who has been serving in Afghanistan. He has returned from his deployment safe and sound. Thank you for your prayers.
One month after Ryan Emmons got married, his younger sister Rachel did too. It doesn't seem possible that Rachel is that old, or her groom, Jon Driver--I remember him, about 7 years-old in my Bible class at Camp Good News. Watching them grow up has been a pleasure and a privilege--and now they start a new segment of their lives...well enough rambling... This is the doily that I made for Rachel and Jon. It is from Traditional Tatting Patterns edited by Rita Weiss and is called Summer Evening. It is made from Lizbeth thread, size 20, colors 601 (Snow White) and 604 (Black.) This was my first completely Frontside/Backside project and it measured 10 inches when it was finished.
I'm one of those people who can't visualize something until it is completed (this means that all my readers should pity my husband when I want to rearrange the furniture). If I were to do this doily again, I would do all the repeating motifs one color and the other rounds a second color. I think also, that fewer picots in the second color's rounds might look better.
