Tickled pink!!!


Now do you remember how annoyed I was when it became obvious that my ladybird pattern had been used by an Italian magazine? Here's the link to my blog post.

Well I was very upset about the whole thing and discussions continued with Allessandro and I realised that the whole matter could be helped by educating everybody about this sort of thing rather than getting the aged knickers further in a twist.  In the end I agreed to send in a couple of my patterns to be considered for publication.  Actually what I did was take two off my web site (the dolphin and smaller seahorse) and tried to simplify them.

Personally I don't think they're as 'good' as the originals but, for this situation, as the magazine has started with simple techniques and is slowly building them up, I feel it works.

There is also a full page 'blurb' on yours truly too.  I had to copy type the Italian into google translate and found out that this is what it says!!!!

We are pleased to present in this issue of the journal, two works created by Jane Eborall, an artist Anglo-Saxon (means English!!!) one of the most imaginative creative in the world of tatting.
Work at chiarcchierino (tatting) since working with the shuttle, now about 55 years ago. During a trip scolasitca in Belgium, Bruge, was hit by bobbin lace made by a local lady. Back at home. his dream was to be able to carry out similar work.

Two years later, by chance, her grandmother decided to attend a tatting and also involved her granddaughter in this new learning.
From that moment Jane is passionate significantly to this technique and made it their hobby, so much so that even now and unlikely to spend a day without ever having used the 'mythical' shuttle.
Tatting for and has no secrets, since he created with arches, rings and picots an entire zoo which can be viewed on his blog http://janeeborall.blogspot.co.uk.
and on this site http://www.janeeborall.freeservers.com, which provides free copy from various schemes

Our knowledge with Jane and was random but very lucky, and everything depended on a ladybug ....... created by Jane in 2001.
And so was born a useful exchange of information and collaboration practica and that resulted in these two mervigliosi marine subjects that we offer.

All's well that ends well - borrowing from the Bard.
And you've got a special mention too. Well done, Jane.
'Mythical' shuttle? hmmm....

Congratulations Jane. I think you handled that situation very well and wouldn't be interesting to know how many more tatters there are going to be in the world because of your kindness.

Firm and Prestigious!! - I like the Mythical Shuttle too, sounds as though you have wandered into Hogwarts for a bit!
I think you've handled the whole thing absolutely brilliantly, and have won new fans.

Brill!! Even down to the gender change and the school trip!! Mind you, I wasn't aware that Nick tatted too.... LOL

Tally Tatty said...

Ha ha ha !!! Que bella voce!

Ninetta said...

They didn't say thank you, or they had an odd way to say it. Here's my big thanks, I've never tatted in the way I do, without you. Hugs.

Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and give Jane a shuttle, she will make it mythical. Elegant erratum, nicely managed. And you are right: attacking is not the solution, but educating. The way you did it is perfect. Curious to see how you simplified the patterns.

Congrats Jane! You are an awesome lady to turn the situation into a positive one!!

I'm glad that you're getting the recognition you deserve.

Debbie H said...

That's a great resolution to a sticky issue. And they included a correction showing YOU created the ladybug pattern. Win-win all around.

Marilee Rockley said...

Congratulations! That's wonderful.

Martha said...

Hope there was no injury when hit by bobbin lace made by a local lady in Belgium. Gotta love those online translations.

Congrats for an excellent outcome for a situation that started out badly.

Phyllis said...

Glad to hear that they were listening to you. The write up is nice. Maybe this will start a nice working relationship for contributions in the future?

Denise Brant said...

Congratulations!
I'll bet you were surprised. Are you getting any royalties from both of the issues with your work in them ? Well, even if you don't it is still very good for you good that you will have more people visiting your web site. Now is the time to keep many tatting shuttles and jewelry and accessories in your Etsy shop. people are going to search for that along with your patterns and techniques. again, Congratulations.

Jane Eborall said...

Thanks for all your wonderful comments.
Just to answer Denise - no, no royalties as I never charge for my work. I'm honestly not bothered whether people visit my site or not either. It's a sort of 'record' for me of what I've done over the years!!! Pleasing to hear from time to time that a pattern or technique have been used, I must admit!
Ah, Etsy. Not sure where I go wrong with that - I can sell shuttles for my sister easily but when it comes to my things I'm not that clever!!!! Keeps me out of mischief, though!!!!

Tally Tatty said...

Gracie, signora Ninetta.

Suztats said...

WooHoo!!! Yay and congrats!

muskaan said...

Congratulations, Jane :-)))))
All that they've written about you is so true (oh well, except for the gender change perhaps? ;-))
I frequently refer to your tutorials, and the TIAS 2014 that I joined for the 1st time, Really jumpstarted my shift towards neo-tatting techniques, all with your readiness to help.
Very very happy for you :-)

You did a grand job there Jane - I'm I am proud "for" you :-)
