Some pictures of my progress

 This is the Oeillets doily, with all the small motifs. I haven't done anything for a while.
 The gilt frame is finished, ends and all. Now, what to do with it?
 These are my first sea horses, from Jane's lovely pattern. The first one I did, the tail went the wrong way, but the second one is fine. These are made in DMC pearl size 8, which I have never used before, and are for David. His father's regiment had a sea horse motif, and he has asked for more of these. The pattern is quite simple, but the beads make it a little bit fiddly. Still, I don't think it will be too much to make him another three.
I am showing this edging from the booklet, for Tattingrid, who is looking for hanky edgings. This one is in the vintage DMC 70 thread, and I think it would look good on a handkerchief. There isn't a corner in the book, I would think it would be possible to do one, though.

I really like that doily pattern! Do you know if it's available online?

I kind of like the seahorse with the tail going the wrong way. He's doing his own thing!

I think that edging would look wonderful on a hanky. I have that book, so maybe I'll give it a go!

Oops! I forgot about the gilt frame... it's lovely! Wouldn't an old family picture look wonderful framed with that tatting?

All your tatting are lovely. Can't really pick any favourite from this list.

The frame is beautiful. Congrats on finishing it!

I have used that edging for baby socks - it is sweet. It would also be perfect on a hankie.
