Now this is a little gem to tat. The design is (in my opinion) a terrifically great one as it just 'works'. I only wish it was my design but at least it belongs to one of my favourite tatters (and amazing bobbin lacer). Anybody guess?

Well it's Rosemarie Peel's design and comes from one of her books. The pattern is in the book called (Tatting Basic Patterns). Just had a look and she's still got copies of that book here on her site.

I'm taking this pattern and shuttles to make another of these little mats while I'm travelling. I can't tat on the plane but I can in the departure lounge and I'll be spending a few hours there!!!

  1. why can't you tat on the plane? - I love the star in the centre of this design,it's a wonderful example of negative space.

    1. Mainly cause if you drop something it's so hard to find it again!!! Also it's just something I rarely do. This time as I'm working on a lovely repetitive design I just may try again!!!
