Well, at last the basket is dry! It's still raining, but the day before yesterday we had a few hours of sunshine, long enough to let me apply 2 coats of the high gloss spray. The original pattern has a handle. I didn't make it because I want the basket for exhibition and it's where I'm going to place my business cards. So as they can easily be taken I opt for no handle.
The pattern is from the DMC Book of Charted Tatting Designs. It's been one of my favorites and lately the one I have been using. I'm just trying to inspire my lil sister for her "wed-niversary". She wants to make a wedding ceremony the day of her 1st anniversary, so that's why the word.
She saw the crown and she loves it. But... She wants it made in black and red! *shrugs* Let see if I tat it completely black with red beads and pearls or black and red threads with pearls. I guess she will want a black basket too!
