I’m still working on cluny leaves. The pattern is by Mimi Dillman and can be found here.
Picot holders between the leaves. Paperclips work, but they tend to hook on everything. There must be a better way.
My first coaster is on the left, the second on the right. They both still need to be blocked. Notice the bottom left corner of the second one.
The chain should have been joined to the bottom of the ring, not the cluny leaves. The technical term for this is a ‘in too much of a hurry’ mistake. I now have to pick out the sewn in ends. This will leave me with less than an inch of thread… Much too short to sew in.
Swearing – and retro-tatting (picking loose the double stitches; tatting does NOT pull out) – may ensue.
