Diane's Doodad Double Dare! But, I never can plan ahead, my designs just sort of "happen" and I'm as surprised as anyone if something actually turns out.
Because the lace "frame" surrounding the suspended filigree is so open, it needed stiffening to stay in shape. I painted "Fa-brick" stiffener on the back only. I like to keep the natural sheen of the cotton thread untouched on the front.
Oh, and while other people are getting excited about going to "Tat Days" I haven't done any preparation at all, other than get my travel arrangements in order. I sort of have a sense of foreboding about the whole event. Silly, I know. Probably it'll be loads of fun once I'm there, but it's the whole "journey into the unknown" that scares me.
