I am away from home, and though I brought the Fikkert piece, I am also entertaining myself with Robin Peretti's border for this beautiful hankie, generously sent to me a few years ago from a tatting buddy. : )
I think I managed that corner rather splendidly!

I really like Robin’s work. I tried a pattern she posted (a rework of a Tina Frauberger pattern) that I think would be great on a hankie if done in a #80.
This is tatted in a #12 Perle cotton:

I have no patience for tatting jewellery. However, I picked up alphabet beads in a dollar store ages ago because I saw there were two "B"s for "Abby."
Yesterday, I realized there was only one lone "B" in the bag, so I had to go with the full name. That made for more practice following Jane's instructions. Never hurts to practice.

For those of you who do not check Jane 's fabulous site for patterns and techniques, I suggest you do! Here is where I found the instructions for adding beads to a split ring:
I had begun trying to figure out how to tat this for The Boss myself, but could have saved both time and aggro (+ profanity) had I just gone to Jane's site first!
There are no excuses. After all, we have it so easy- so much out there for us in Tat-Land and everywhere else with just the tap of a finger.
Thank you, Jane. You are a treasure.
