Tatted Maple Leaf Doily attached to a small white doily. There are 8 maple leaves attached and the ninth one in the center. It was tatted and attached all at the same time working with Lizbeth 40. My daughter has her own business testing water and this old brass water meter from Cortland, NY fits perfect for a Birthday Gift!   The Maple Leaf pattern is by Tammy Rodgers.

I have been painting laces and ribbons this week. Kathy Shawkl has lots of free classes and this one is Painting with acid dyes on laces and ribbons. Lots of great information and learning a lot about dyes. I have used lots of different dyes but one can always learn more.  Need to find time for my Crazy Quilt and add some of these beautiful ribbons and motifs.

Beautiful! I learned to tat several years ago, but didn't keep it up and now I can't remember a thing. I admire anyone who does such beautiful, intricate work....I know what goes into it.

That was clever of you, to turn the maple leaf into an edging! I'm surprised you were using acid dyes for lace because I thought they were for animal fibres. They look lovely in an array of colour.
