Inspired by Jon

I have been admiring Jon's efforts with Norma Benporath's Five Dainty Designs for Tatting. I really didn't think I was up to interpreting old patterns, but I took a look anyway.


I had some of LadyShuttleMaker's "Americana" left on the shuttles, so I decided to give Edging #3 a try. I like the gentle curve of this edging, and I have an idea of how I can use it.

I tatted until one shuttle was empty. I decided to use the remaining thread to tat "Leaf Braid" from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior. I love using this pattern to use up left-over thread! Some day I'll use my bits of Leaf Braid to decorate some CQ blocks... some day!
