December 2015 Tatted Presents

Wow! Where does the time go? The older I get the faster it seems to move.

I hope you'll think better late than never as I update you with what I've been working on in the months since my last post.

*I designed the two button bookmarks, but they are a simple combination of rings and chains.
*This cross by Jackie Fiuntini of New South Wales is a favorite go-to piece for me. It was published on page 3 of Tatter Tales, Volume 3, Issue 3.
*The little fairy with the wings is adapted from a combination of the features I liked best in Teri Dusenbury's Pincess Bijou Fairy and her Princess Dorie Fairy. Both original patterns were printed in her Tattle Tales newsletters. Princess Dorie is available online along with a few of her other Papillon Princesses at, but I don't see Bijou among them.
*The Bird of Paradise Bookmark is from page 29 of Dianna Stevens' Animal Bookmarks, A Tatted Zoo (2004).
*The hanky edging is Eternity Rings by Mary Konior. You'll find it on page 26 or Tatting with Visual Patterns (1992).

I designed an edging for another hanky when I couldn't find a pattern that seemed just right. You'll see it a bit later along with a picture of the fairy tale tatting finally up for display in my granddaughter's bedroom. It took us forever to find the ivory velvet I wanted for the backing.

Happy tatting!

Mom loves color so I wanted at least one of her hankies to be bursting with it. I had the perfect colors for this hanky in DMC size 80, so I went with it. I thank you all for your kind words.
