Fan-tastic project!

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.

I just found your blog and I can't tell you adorable this fan is. I have a shuttle - somewhere - and may have to try it, in between my embroidery projects.

Any thoughts to making your CD's available as downloads for use on iPad and other notepads?
