It was Mother's Day here recently and my son and his lovely wife, Charlie (who is coming to the end of her breast cancer treatment, took me out for a meal. While we were eating, Charlie became very hot, as she often does, due to the side effects of the treatment and I thought that a lace fan would be perfect.
I found this old paper covered fan on Ebay for a very small amount of money and bought it.
When it arrived, I pulled the paper off and gave the plastic arms a good clean in warm soapy water.
It came up gleaming!
This is the design I have come up with so far and you can see it against the fan fingers in the next picture.
When I have tatted all the spines, I will then tat a fill-in design to join them all up.
I will post some pics when it is all done.
