Glow Tats

This is a journal of my tatting and other needlework adventures. Oh the picture isn't me, it is my fairy me, the me that can fly off in to the woods, forget all my troubles and tat pretty lace all day

Found Treasure

Amazing what treasures can be found in an antique store for almost nothing! This one is a beauty, the coarse fabric in the center, notice the fancy stitching over the hem, many of the chains are tatted in ruffled sets, all the picots perfectly even and laying straight, and such a wonderful design. My Mom says that I need to label my tatting or work from all my found treasures, as years down the road my daughters will not remember which ones I have tatted. Probably a good idea for many of us but how? Tags like the fair wouldn't do, I can get little hearts charms at the fiber store that say "made with love", maybe a fine ribbon, or a small beaded decoration on my work.
Hmmmmm.... Still needs some thought.

Oh, that's gorgeous! At first I thought it looked like something from Emmy Liebert's patterns but now it seems more along the line of what I've seen in Tatting, Designs from Victorian Lacecraft.
