During March one of the Facebook tatting pages had a tat along using the vintage pattern of the starlight doily. I had a lovely pale green Altin Basak size 40 thread that seemed perfect for this. It was lovely to tat, the pattern was not to complex. I adapted the first few rounds to be done with continuous thread method (CTM).
I was showing it to my best friend on the weekend, as I had it out drying from being blocked. My friend thought it was lovely enough for a frame. I agreed, then had a brain wave, this could be made into a clock! It has 12 points, so would work easily if I added a clock mechanism and mount it. I have long admired the clocks on pintrest made from upcycled doilies. So another project had been added to my list for crafting.
I wonder when a brain wave has led to an interesting adaptation of a crafty project for you?
Until next time, happy tatting
