Sneak Peek #2



I like this simple edging much better for the dresser scarf. The pink was just becoming too heavy and overwhelming for the delicate linen. This edging is done with size 12 pearl cotton. I think it will move a lot more quickly too.
UPDATE: The white pearl cotton was too white, and color #712 was too dark. I tried a couple colors and an even lighter design, and I'm still not happy. For one, I think I made the edge too wide, so it's throwing off the eye. Secondly, this linen is so fine that everthing seems to be too heavy. Right now I'm having 2 thoughts - I need to think about using a very small tatting thread (70 or 80) OR it doesn't need an edging at all. Sigh.

Very pretty...thanks for the peak. I'm looking forward to the full on oggling of the finished piece.
