Forever young finished


Finished.

To say that I'm pleased with this would be an understatement. It's a delightful pattern which I've thoroughly enjoyed making. I'm off to explore Teri's blog again to see what else I might like to make. She's certainly an amazing designer.

I remember when we used to talk a lot and she was always singing the praises of Dora Young and this is reflected in this pattern.  As I'd never seen Dora's book I hadn't much of a clue why she was so intrigued.  Now I thoroughly do understand and am finding that Teri's work has ME very interested now.

Teri is a totally talented designer. I adore her work but find it hard to understand some of her thought processes.

Jane Eborall said...

Thanks - but it's really down to Teri.

Jane Eborall said...

My apologies - get in touch when you get roundtoit and I'll try and help you to diagnose the pattern!!!

Jane Eborall said...

Thank you.

Jane Eborall said...

Thank you, Madtatter80. It's all down to Teri and a grumpy old git who really loves her work!!!

Jane Eborall said...

Absolutely. Her way of notating her designs does make sense but I struggled and sort of translated it into 'Jane'!!!!

I just love pineapple designs. I have yet to do this pattern, it's on my list, your's is lovely.

Jane Eborall said...

Well mine is only as good as the designer made it. Love Teri's designs.

God's Kid said...

That is outstanding!!! :) You sure tatted it quickly!! :)

Jenn said...

Beautiful tatting :). Teri have a lot of wonderful patterns/designs. One could get lost easily browsing her blog. We are lucky to have so many talented designers sharing their patterns/designs with us :).

I knew you would finish this in record time! It's a great design, and your change in thread gives it a crisp look. So glad you are reminding tatters of Teri's many accomplishments and contributions. She did some interesting things with the pineapple design, including a pretty drawstring bag and a large butterfly.

Jane Eborall said...

Just thinking of starting the one pineapple butterfly!!!

It's a wonderful work, and I've to tell that I know exactly how difficult it could be to tat something like that.
Some years ago, I've tatted Pineapple Heaven by Doretha Albee. Here is a picture of my example of that work: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10203845930890119&set=a.3994206975001.170674.1275721357&type=3&theater
As you can see, it's really similar of your work.
The pattern of the pineapple I've got from Georgia Seitz's page: http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2011/dorethaalbeepineheaven.pdf
