Maeve is at first glance a complicated tangle of work! Yet, as I look again, I see it is not that hard. What type of thread did you use? Wonderful design!
I think it is an HDT ( maybe Kerry Solomon's #30), but I forget!Fox : )
Oh, these look like I need to spend some time tatting! I love the button center idea for Athalia.
Thanks, N. Maria! Hope you like tatting these!Fox : )
Stumbled upon you on Pinterest. My Grandmother tried to teach me tatting 10+ years ago, and as I approach my 65th b'day, I've decided to teach myself, out of honor to her. I love your work and I'm very inspired again. Thank you for sharing. Blesses be. Sandi

Hello,I am learning how to tat and so far, I'm liking it. Is there an easy book out there that is good for a beginner? And your items are very beautiful! Carol :)
Hi, Carol,There are so many!I suggest you join InTatters:www.intatters.comThen poke around the site and you will find tone and tons of info, help and ideas about what books you would like to read. I started there and would never have learned tatting without the help from the women there. it is a marvellous resource for a committed tatter!Good luck!Fox : )
Hi Fox,Where do you source your findings from?
Couldn’t really tell you - lots were given to me and I get some from a little bead store in my city. i don’t have a large supply at all. There are online stores as well, but I have not used them for findings.Fox
