Flowerpiece by Mary Konior

I just received my copy of the Ring of Tatters Newsletter and there, on the front cover, is Flowerpiece by Mary Konior.  

I recognised it as the little doily on my coffee table.  So here it is.  Tatted many years ago, but still very pretty.  We lost a great designer in Mary.

Aren't I the lucky one !!!

Tat’s All She Wrote had a Give Away to celebrate her 200th post on her blog. She had designed a charm to go on a phone or scissors.   I thought the charm was so pretty and told her so... I won it !!  After three weeks of waiting I e-mailed Marty to ask if it could have got lost in the post.  I was so disappointed but she said she would make another one and send it.  I waited another week and then we had the volcano, the skies were closed and I thought I had lost it forever.  Suddenly within a week, the first one and then the second one arrived.  I must also mention the beading needle that came with both charms, so I have 2 of  those now. They will be very useful.  Am I lucky ?? I should say so.  Thank you so much Marty for all the trouble you went to and for the needles and lovely charms. They are both so pretty and beautifully made.

Something for Easter

I have tatted this cross in different colours and threads for an Easter theme.

Thursday 1 April 2010


I have been tatting an edging, using Lizbeth no. 20. Isn't the colour lovely.  It's 'curds & Whey' by Mary Konior. It is to be sewn round a bonnet, which I will show you, when I have finished it.

I needed a fine edging for the edge of the bonnet, and made up the one at the bottom of the picture.  Now can I claim this as my own design.  It is so simple, I can't believe that no-one has done it before.  On the other hand, is it so basic that it can't be copy righted?
