Tatting - 25 Motif Challenge


An edging from one of my old McCall's Needlework & Crafts from the 1940's. Pattern is still (probably) under copyright. Needle-tatted with an extra fine needle in DMC #12 Coton Perle from Village Stitches, and reverse-imaged to create a bookmark with a length of grosgrain ribbon.

That bookmark is lovely. Love that photo! That cat looks so peaceful and content and sleepy...just like how I feel right now, VBG! :)

Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

Very nice. I'm ready to start trying the really small crochet stitches from some vintage books I have. Seems like a good summer-weather project.

Very pretty - the cat and the tatting. A Detroit Times Cookbook - how fun is that?!

I love your tatting, Shay. I think I might see if my elbow can stand up to needle-tatting once it gets a little warmer.

A lot of people are getting bookmarks for Christmas because of this challenge!
