Was I lucky or what! At my Senior's group we get all kinds of donations. Recently a large piece of tatting was included in a bag of fabric. It was old and dusty. One of our members washed, pressed and starched the piece which turned out to be a collar. For our bazaar it was priced at $5, and I bought it. I feel slightly bad about cutting it up, but it's going to adorn many CQ pieces instead of just one dress. I already have carefully cut out one strip which I used on Detail 80a. I have been teaching myself needle tatting, but in my wildest dreams I will never create anything like this.
