Third Motif


Here is a pattern of Mary Konior's. This is from her book, "Tatting with Visual Patterns." She has a great eye for design, and I find her things very different from so many other tatting patterns. I did adapt it *slightly* to add the leaves. Of course she has fantastic diagrams of the patterns as well, which I find so much easier to read that traditional written patterns. It is how I document most of my own patterns - it's rare that I would actually write the pattern out "long hand."

I work for a tax accountant as my "other" job. Sadly, my boss passed away about three weeks ago. This time of year, that has put even more of a time crunch on my already busy life. It has also been hard because he was a good friend, and I miss him.

I have a show next week though, so the tatting must go on...and, truth be told, I have always maintained that tatting is good therapy. I have found that to be no less true during this this difficult time.

I think you make beautiful tatted jewellery. I don't wear jewellery much, so I know I will not be making any at the moment.

I am sorry to hear about your friend/boss.

Elizabeth, I like your tatted jewelry. These particular colors suit me quite well if you ever run out of run to store this necklace! Your site is lovely. You are very expressive.
