It's been a while

Sorry it's been a while since I wrote here the last time. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging and even tatting. And work has taken a lot of my time and energy this last month. But I am back now.

The square doily above is from an older Italian magazine - one of those Lavoro magazines. I think it is from number 2.

The thread is the gift shown in my previous post, the Milford thread. And size 20.
It looks very nice when you've tatted something with it. But I warn you - if you're going to try it someday - it tangles and twists like nothing I have ever tried before. I was about to give it up more than once but I wanted to finish it. And I did, yes I made it, lol. But it really got my temper out in the open, roflol.
Pity because it looks so nice and feels like a very nice thread.

What a lovely doily! Congratulations on making it to the end, after struggling with the twisting, kinking threads.

Hi Susanne, your doily square mat thing that you tatted is very pretty! Thank you for the warning about the Milford thread. I will keep that in mind.

I have a warning about Majestic thread. It comes in size 80 which I like and has lots of beautiful colors that you can't get in the DMC size 80 which I also like BUT it breaks very easily! I DID NOT LIKE! So, there's your warning. Hope I've saved you some money, too!

Oh, sure I'll send you some good luck! .....sent!
Thanks for the comment on my blog today!

It looks great Susanne. I also have found that thread to be a pain to work with and yet so nice to the touch when you first open it. No idea why.
I love the pattern you have used. Another cute one for your collection.
