We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

A Lacey Day

It's another restful Sunday for me today. Decided to tat although there was no chocolate in sight. Am very pleased with the final product. It's a very sweet bow/ribbon, isn't it?

Tatted in DMC #30 Ecru; pattern from Tatting Lace by Applemints (a Japanese tatting book).
My former colleague, who was the Editorial Director at my previous workplace, sent me a picture of this lovely crochet-clad tree he came across in the street in Curitiba (Brazil). He said he saw this tree and thought of me. How sweet of him!

  2. Val, that bow is sensational!

  3. The bow is lovely! How big is it and what are you planning to do with it?

    1. Thanks! The bow is about 7 cm across (lengthwise). I haven't decided on how to use it yet, but I guess it's rather versatile. :)
