Japanese motifs

I've started another Spinning Wheel glass mat, but in the meantime I wanted to broaden my horizons, so I pulled out two of my Japanese tatting books. The light green motif is from The Tatted Artistry of Teiko Fujito. The thread is size 20 Flora, #228. The dark green motif is from A New Approach to Tatting by Yusai Shokoin. The thread is Parlak Oren Bayan Dantel size 50, #063.


  1. Those are really pretty - love the colors you chose!

    I have Tatted Artistry, but hadn't heard of A New Approach to Tatting. It looks like another beautiful book. The edition I saw on the internet said the text was in Japanese. Does it have diagrams like Tatted Artistry?
