Waiting Room Giveaway


This photo of me tatting in the waiting room at the doctor's office (while DH's foot was being examined - notice I did not say 'head,' ha ha!) - was created with Paper Camera. The effect applied to the photo was called Comic (somethingorother), perhaps Comic Grunge?

Can anyone tell what it is I am tatting? (The lace draped over my right hand.)

The person who posts the first correct answer in the comments will win a 50-yard skein of hand-dyed thread from my stash.

I haven't yet chosen the winning thread, so tell me your favorite color and I will try to match the winner with HDT in his or her favorite color or at least a colorway that includes his or her favorite color.

I will not reveal the correct answer until Saturday, October 22nd at 12:00 noon EST. So hurry, that is less than three days away!

P.S. If nobody guesses the correct answer I will ask DH to take another photo with PaperCamera using another bit of tatting and you will have a second chance to win!

Everybody ready? Let the guessing begin!

I think it's the Yes-U-Can doily. Clever manipulation of the photo. Oh, can I have another guess? I think you're tatting a noose for your hubby's neck - in case he keeps you waiting too long!!!

sunrise, sunset bookmark from Martha Ess's Playing with Picots book

purple or green

Lace-lovin' Librarian ~ Diane said...

It looks like Martha Ess's "Sunrise, Sunset" bookmark to me!

Trayna said...

I reckon it is an adaptation of Sunrise, Sunset Bookmark by Martha Ess to make a bracelet!
Whatever it is.....clever effect with the photo!

I think it looks like Mary Konior's "Curds & Whey" edging!

Teresa said...

It really does look like the sunrise, sunset bookmark - but I guess that's already been said. I really need to buy a copy of that book!

Gina said...

I thought curds & whey from Konior too but also knowing you went to Palmetto's, I thought it could be Martha's bookmark. Both of my guesses are already mentioned by others, but what I really noticed was that you're a left handed tatter!

Looks like Martha Ess' Sunrise, Sunset, but I'm dooming myself to never being the first correct answer here, as I'm about the 8th person to say so! I like blue and purple, anyway. :P

I think you might be doing a hanky edging,

Susie said...

I think it looks like the playing with picots bookmark.

Lily said...

Well, to me it looks like the "Riddle" pattern found on the free-tatting site.


Like the paper effect!

If (big IF) by somechance I am right, then just surprise me with a color choice!

Tattin' Kat said...

It looks like a bookmark to me, but just to be different I will guess a leash :)

Sally Kerson said...

Absolutely no idea, apart from what everyone else has said, so just to be different will say a necklace, it looks too thick for that but perhaps Jane is right it is a noose!!!
