Here is the Valdani edging short by two repeats and partially sewn to a piece of cotton fabric. I some ways it loses the pattern by being such a fussy print, but it has colours that match and it is too small to be anything... the edge was the right size for the piece and I had just enough thread to do this size edging...well I think I do, because I have got bored and left it as it is, waiting for a moment of enthusiasm to actually finish it all off!
This is the first half of Cordelia from Iris Niebach's book of doilies. I was going to do Delia, because I already made Cordelia a couple of years ago, but I made a mistake after just a few rings and chains. I decided to return to the earlier pattern, get my hand in and then try Delia once I was feeling more practised. The thread is Lizbeth wildflowers size 80, and it is tatting up nicely. :)
