Off the Shuttle: Tatted Edging on Embroidered Mat

I bought this mat several years ago because of the embroiderd holly berry and leaf design. It had an edging of coarse machine-made lace in ecru which I removed. For the replacement edging, I picked a burgundy thread whose color matches the embroidered berries on the mat.

The edging pattern is "No. 2" on page 32 in Tatting Doilies & Edgings edited by Rita Weiss (Dover Publications, 1980). The thread is DMC Cebelia, size 20, color #816.

So effective.

Oh this looks so good ecru would dull the embroidery work.

The original lace looked like glad to get it replaced.
