This is Georgia Setiz’s pattern from
"Tatting on the Edge...and Beyond.”
I tatted this over the weekend because I was inspired by Frivole’s rendition, which you can see here. It is such a beautiful pattern and a lovely tat, which I carried out using #30 Cèbèlia. I liked the ecru that Frivole used and this was the only ecru I have in my stash.
It is hard to believe it is the same pattern as this:
Not only have I recently developed a liking for ecru and white thread, but also am no longer overly fond of two colour tatting as in the above piece.
Can anyone tell me where the pattern is for a design that uses these beads to make a little tatted name piece? I cannot remember where I saw it and I got these beads today for The Boss and Her Brother. Now I can’t find the pattern!
The needles are the self-threading kind that I also needed as I seem to have lost mine. Frivole reminded me how easy they are to use. Thanks, Frivole!
p.s. One more thing! Small picots rock!
I made a conscious effort in this piece to keep the picots as small as I could. Took some effort, as I seem to automatically tat larger ones.
I like the itty bitty picots a lot better. : )
