Lace Mat Progress


Norma Benporath Lace Mat Tat-Along
Round 3

Hurray!  Round three is complete. The Norma Benborath Lace Mat is looking graceful, even before blocking. 



Here is a photo of it pinned onto a round blocking template.  Hmmm, it might be time to print out a new one  (judging from all the pin holes).

Many thanks to LadyShuttleMaker for offering these free printable templates on her blog.  They are so handy!

Today (Veteran's Day in the USA) will mark the beginning of round four.  I have tatted all eight finishing clovers separately so they are ready to attach as I tat. The finishing clovers are tatted in Lizbeth®40 Gold #611 and (crossing fingers) will draw the eye outward to the edges of the mat.

So far I really like how the Lizbeth®40 Honey Drizzle #180 complements the first two rounds. (Lizbeth®40 Pineapple Parfait #170, for those who like to know).

I think it's beautiful! I was actually wondering how well those two colors would go together. I've been considering ordering them. I'm not a yellow person, but sometimes you see things that make you reconsider colors you don't gravitate toward, this would be one of those things.
It is indeed graceful. You've done a wonderful job, thanks for showing it off!
