Fan-tastic project! Completed

Here, as promised, are pictures of the completed fan. It is a simple ring and chain design, but I think you will agree that it looks quite effective. It is a little fiddly to close, but I think this will improve when it has been in the folded position for a while.

And it works! Even though it is lacy, it still causes a nice, ladylike draught! LOL!!!

Your fan is so incredibly beautiful, I am a tad envious of it :) I use fans in the summer all the time, but I own nothing quite so elegant. You did an incredible job!

Thank you for all the lovely comments.
This pattern is a simple ring and chain affair and so it just shows that you do not have to have advanced tatting skills to achieve a beautiful piece of work!
I have been requested to write the pattern down and so, when it is done, I will put a link here on my blog to the PDF.
And, Miranda, the lace is attached with PVA glue.
