Mignonette Tatted Wedding Hanky FINISHED!




It is done. I love the Mignonette tatting, really I do, but this was a big project. Or, maybe it just seemed so since I just finished tatting the other wedding hanky. I wish I had kept up with how many yards of thread I used and how many times I had to refill my shuttles. It really eats up the thread.

I hope the pictures show up well. It is so pretty. I forgot that I had changed the setting on my camera to lower quality because I needed some smaller files. I might have to change it back and make more pictures. In any case, there is no way you can tell how nice it looks. The Irish Linen hanky really makes a difference too.

Elizabeth has done this edging on a hanky. She will be able to appreciate what went into it!

It is breath taking. I cannot find the right words to describe it. I want to see it for real. Madeline

I thought I had commented on this but realized it must have been the other post. This is beautiful, how long did it take overall to complete?

Thank you Sherry. It is always so hard to figure out how long something takes. I need to start marking down how long I work each time I pick something up! It's really not as bad as it looks. With all of the measuring on the 2nd and 3rd rounds, it was probably 1 1/2 to 2 hours a side on those rounds. The first round took about that or a little more per side. The outside round took a couple hours per side. I guess that is a pretty long time!
