Motif 27 and 28 Cobweb Doily

 I tagged along with The Hubs to Home Depot a few months ago. While he was doing his thing I entertained myself in the paint aisle. I love looking at the paint cards. This one caught my eye as I have thread similar to those colors. At one time I probably did hold the balls together but wasn't thrilled with the combo.

So I brought the paint card home, dug out those threads and made a pair of Cobweb Doilies from Tatting Doilies and Edgings by Rita Weiss.

I had two colors that sorta matched the lighter mauve so figured a little color play was in order. The ecru-y color on the card has a weird green tint to it but regular ecru looks just fine.

Since then I've picked up another card and as soon as I finish a few things I'll find a pattern for that.

Motif 26 Lavender & Lace

This is Lavender & Lace from "Tatting Doilies & Edgings" edited by Rita Weiss. It's 4 of the motifs joined together.

The thread is vintage Star brand in a peach varigation. It came from a bag of tatting threads and shuttles my sister-in-law picked up at a thrift store. I used up pretty much all of what was on the ball.
