In the Garden Round Robin

At the CQS list, we are doing a round robin with the theme based on the hymn, 'In the Garden.' The ladies at CQS are all Christians so it will really be a special round robin and a special memento once our blocks return home.
I made a block for one of the ladies in it and this is it. She loves all things Victorian and I really like the colors and how it came out. It is twelve by twelve inches and this is it with no embellishments and with how I am leaning to go with it so far... I might change the lace on the bottom. I am digging for some irish crochet that might look better. Have to try it on for size later tonite

  2. OOh very nice!Love the deep plum colours and the peach and white bring up the tones perfectly!

    That circular lace (is it tatting?) is lovely! I can't wait to see the work on this, Lillian!

    Well done!

  3. Hi Elizabet,

    Yes, it is tatting, although I think it is machine tatted or half crochet and half tatted. I asked a tatting list about it and they said it was done by hand although it doesnt look like it to me. I am not the greatest tatter but i try to have a discerning eye.

  6. Very pretty block. I'm confused by the picture, though. How are you going to add it to the block now? I love that piece of lace and can't imagine what could be prettier than that.

  8. Susan,

    Sometimes I add the lace as I sew and other times I add it afterwards. If it is in the middle of a block I take out a tiny bit of stitching and add it wherever I want it. In this case, it is on the edge of the block so I had to undo nothing. =)
