Still a little overcast here today so I can't seem to get a picture of this tatting to show it's true colors, but I think if you click to open it up to a bigger size it might help.
I'm still in love with how the colors are playing out and also still not sure what I may use it for. I'm thinking - bag/embellishment. Surprised? Me neither.
In the meantime, I keep thinking about Galina and those gossamer shawls. What a treat to see them 'in person'. In fact treat doesn't begin to describe it.
I was thrilled to find a podcast with an interview with Galina. It is over an hour long and isn't as much an interview as a long narrative by Galina discussing the Orenburg lace tradition, knitting in communist Russia, and how she ended up in America as author, instructor, and historian of Orenburg traditional lace knitting.
