Here's the motif I'm tatting from the same thread that I crocheted the last motif from. The pattern is from: Tatting - 60 Original Lace Treasures, Christel Weidmann, pg 21, design #23. I don't think I've made anything from this book before but I'm not sure. I didn't get it for ages even though it was available. Every time I looked through it, it didn't seem like there was anything unique in it that I just had to have. I think it finally went on clearance at Hobby Lobby once and I got it then. Can't pass up a bargain!


The Apron Book was finally in stock again through Walmart online where I got it for 97¢ shipping as well as the low price shown on Amazon. It arrived Monday and I looked through it today during lunch. My favorite aprons are the embroidered ones but there are only a few in the book. Still, it's a lovely nostalgic book about something we seldom see these days. I have a few patterns I've been meaning to sew some aprons from for years.....maybe this will be the year!


  1. I have always been fascinated with tatting. Your work is beautiful and perfect !

    My gram had some things she had done that I saw when I was little. Everytime I visited her I would want to look at those tatted pieces.

    She taught me to crochet but we never got around to tatting.

    Someday maybe !

    In the meantime I will drool over Yours...
    Love - S.
