Coral Hapsburg Lace Canvaswork

 Finished my canvas piece which was either going to be a scissor case or cellphone holder. My mom suggested that it would look nice as a wall hanging & voila that is what it has become.
 Don't think I've ever made so many french knots before but it certainly gives this a nice lacy kind of effect.

I like this so much as a wall hanging that I'm going to make another one but in different colours.  I certainly have enough canvas, thread, ribbon & beads.  I have enough time that I could even make one for a Christmas gift! Before I start another one though I'm going to try my hand at tatting with my sweet turtle shuttle from Diane :)


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! Some day I will learn how to do such elegant needlework. In the meantime, I'll keep on doing what I do best and enjoy the posts of others.

    I hope you have success tatting! If you get stuck, there are lots of YouTube videos to help you out. : )

  2. Your wall hanging turned out beautifully! Hope your tatting goes well.

  3. Thanks Susan. Feeling like I either have too many fingers to tat or not enough. Hope to get the swing of it soon :)

  4. Thanks Diane! Yes, I've been watching a few YouTube tatting videos as well as reading a Learn to Tat book to help me out.

  5. Wow! Jenny! Beautiful work. The colors you used are very soft and pleasing. I admire your patience. After seeing your work I wish I knew tatting!

  6. This is absolutely stunning! You do fantastic things with fabric.

  7. beautiful. Tempted to do one like this. But I don't know whether i will get canvas in my place.



Thank you very much for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate all of them!
