5 motifs and going well!!!


I've now got five of the motifs done on the Dora Young pattern. Still dying to get my mucky mitts on the re-published book due out next year. As I was only interested in helping Bonnie with hers I didn't really look at the other patterns - something I now regret but will put right when I get my copy. No pressure there, Heidi!!!!

I'm not sure what gets into BC3 at times like this. For so many years I wasn't interested in the old 'stuff' but as time goes on I find it fascinating to try and work out how people like Dora managed to develop our craft when there was so little communication between tatters due to the lack of the internet!!! UNLESS they'd already invented an 'intertat' which worked between tatters only. Interesting thought!!!!

  1. In this case, I'd say she's taken inspiration from crochet perhaps? Certainly modern communications make is soooo much easier for ideas to spread.

  3. It does look like crochet I have seen. Very thankful for the internet and how it continues to bring tatters together.
