Today I pulled one of my Japanese books off the shelf, Tatting Lace. I think this is the first time I've used this book. There are quite a few pretty patterns in here, and I decided to start with...
...another bookmark for daughter Carol. I was using up thread on two shuttles, so it's kind of short, but Carol likes it. This is an insertion pattern. I'm not sure I tatted it correctly. I don't read Japanese, so I was just looking at the diagram. I'm not sure I switched shuttles or reversed work correctly, but it still looks nice!
I also tatted this 3 1/2" motif. This one was very easy, and it's just the right size for a piece in my curio cabinet!
Joanne and I were working on organizing my sewing room. I found some socks that I had purchased specifically for adding crocheted edgings. I used to do this for my daughters and my older granddaughters, so why not for Sophia?
They're a hit! Sophia had to put them on before bedtime. I guess I'll do a few more sets just to keep her happy. ;-)
