I've been doing a bit of tatting for some special people. The pieces below are in the mail, and being sent to Gina for her lace piece.
Tatted with Coats' Opera #30 in ecru. this pattern comes from "Needle Tatting with Style Book 1", page 16, "Place Mat" by Virginia Byrd.
I tatted Round 1 and Round 2, then added a third row repeating the pattern in the second round.
This mini-doily measures just over 2 1/2".
I was tatting variations of Rosemarie Peel's 'Leaf' from " 20 Tatted Motifs". My 'leaf' variation measures 1" at its widest point. The 'flowers' are 3/4" wide.
These are for Gina to use as she wishes.
Other tats are waiting to go in the post for some swaps.
Have you been tatting? What have you been making?
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz
