Martha is a wonderful tatter - I am in awe of her tiny, perfect stitches.
She also surprised me in that she sent me these patterns re-written by her in modern tatting terms. Thank you, Martha! This is such a treat!
That lady in the dress is in very fine thread, and it is flawless. I am so impressed.
Another exceptional tatter I heard from, after I arrived home, was Val , who sent me these balls of Omega to try out. They are #50, and the thread is fairly soft. I am eager to try them out.
I am not so sure about the variegation - there appears to be long lengths of each colour and a lot of white... I cannot imagine how it will look tatted. But that is the fun of it, isn’t it! Thank you, Val for the opportunity to try new threads.
The little motif on Val’s card is yet another example of the way I want my own tatting to look. Val’s tatting is, like Martha’s, flawless.
Thank you both for spoiling me!
