Tatted Lace Plans and Progress



I keep my mistakes with tatting and then try to use them. This mistake is forming an idea for a journal cover or purse  or something along with this brooch. Got to sleep on it more.  
I love the old tatted lace books and in some of them they use ric rac and trimmings along with tatting I found this trim on ebay and am excited to recreate one of these patterns for fun.  More to sleep on to figure out which pattern 
Showing progress on Rose and Thistle doily, and on new 2017 Renulek's Spring Doily row two click here 

Here in Tennessee we have mild winters and the temperature go up to 70 for a week or two, and look what I found
Asparagus.  I got to eat him or cover him up in a while, because there will be more cold weather, I am sure of it.
 
Happy Tatting

  5. I love your rose and thistle doily looking very pretty
    I like your idea for the odd piece of tatting, and it will be interesting see if you can work out the lace, which I don't think is tatting but bobbin lace.
    We are in the throws of storm Doris and she's given the UK a big kick today.

  8. I like those old books too. I collect Workbasket Magazine and have them back into 1942. Some of those old patterns still tat up nicely today. I agree with Jane's comment. What is making it dust proof?

    1. You are so lucky to have them, they are a treasure for so many of the fiber arts they are great to have. Yea after I posted them I realize so many odd things about the packaging ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ˜„
