Judith's leaf

Just for a change!!! 

I need to have a change from time to time and Judith Connors - the famous tatter in Australia kindly sent me a copy of their Newsletter.

In it she'd put this variation of Ruth Scharf's leaf pattern.  Obviously Judith had discussed this with Ruth as it was her idea in the first place.

The difference isn't obvious at first - wonder who can spot it?  No, I'm not going to tell you unless you come and twist my arm but you're not allowed to do that because of the virus so I feel safe!!!!  I will tell you if nobody's guessed in a later post.

I went through a serious addiction to Ruth's leaf back a while ago.

It's been a while since I've looked at Ruth's leaf pattern. I never did give it a try. I don't remember Ruth's pattern having split rings up the center. Those are split rings, aren't they?

Jane Eborall said...

Yes they are, Diane and it gives a really nice look and feel to the leaf.

it's also a blip or two longer...

Was it Judith who also had a nice method for doing the lock join and turn, that switched the thread positions in a nice neat way?

Jane Eborall said...

Yes, Martha, Judith uses the reverse join a lot and she told me who ‘invented’ it too but I’ve forgotten!!! Here’s a Karen video of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1f9uZL9IW0 I still tend to be lazy and do the SLT RW in one move.

It's a fabulous leaf!!! :)

Judith Connors said...

It was Elaine P. Gan of Texas who devised the vary handy reverse join. It eliminates the SLT after a lock join. I love it!

BTW, for everyone's information, I have never claimed this leaf design as mine. I always acknowledge Ruth Scharf as the designer whenever I teach it. Yes, I have modified its construction a little with contemporary techniques and drawn a diagram to conform to these, but it will always be Ruth's.
