WIP Spencer 1925 Centerpiece

I love this pattern. This is the third time I’ve tatted it. The first one was in size 80 white and the second was in size 30 Cebelia. This one is size 40 DMC cordonnet and has been blocked yet. When completed, this will be placed onto the octagonal table that we have; the table was given to DH's parents around Christmas 1933.

I plan to add sorrento bars (sometimes known in lacemaking as spiders) in the open spaces between the medallions and the mignonette work of row 9. The picture shows the medallion round of row 10 in progress. I have “only” 3 more rounds after the current one. Then, joy oh joy, blocking will have to be done in earnest!

We had a visitor come into the golf village where we live the other day. It appears to me to be a yearling. A friend who lives in Ennis itself stated that she thought this one may be the older sibling to the calf and mother that are roaming around Ennis. I just haven't seen the mother yet.

Hi Teresa. That is a beautiful piece you are working. What pattern is it? I have a whole drawer of Cebelia in 30 waiting for a shuttle. I see the snow in the photo. We had snow here in Florence a week ago. Glad it is gone now. Tell Ronnie I said hello.
