Mrs Petersen's Dinner Setting

I had the honour recently to complete a setting (Adrienne by Semco) which was begun by the late mother of a childhood friend.  She had completed eight plate mats and coasters, and six rounds of the centre.  I did the remaining rounds. 

It was this lady's tatting that inspired me to learn to tat.  I saw some of her work when about 11 yrs., but its beauty stayed with me, and many years later, I finally found a class.  I have been gifted her shuttles and books, and it is very satisfying to see the completed setting on the table.  Many thanks to her daughter for these lovely photos.
