Ilse's Red and White Sweetie - a Stunning Interpretation

Ilse in Boston has taken the free download chart for our simple red and white sweetie and has created something wonderful from it. What lovely colour combinations. Ilse says she made the red & white sweetie on a 18"x18" cotton table napkin. She has no idea of the thread count but it is around 35 per inch. The thread was selected from a box of her mother's leftovers from her projects. Ilse has pictured her sampler above on a tatting which is a tablecloth made by my great-grandmother in the 1930's. Fabulous, Ilse. Thank you so much for sharing.

  1. Ilse, this is so pretty and you chose colors just perfect :) And does it get any better than having a 30's tablecloth tatter by your great grandmother? thanks for sharing this with us.

  2. Beautiful work and wonderful color choices.


  3. Congratulations on your beautiful finish!
