Look What I Found

I was cleaning out a some old things that had belonged to my husband mother that I just put away and never got back too. When I put this away I never even looked into it till the other day. I figured it had old letter or card that belonged his his grandmother. Look at what was in the box.
A tatting book and two shuttles which had to belong to his grandmother because his mother did any kind of craft at all.

Then there are some patterns that she had cut out .

More patterns she had in the box.

Happy New Year

I have been tatting. G Grandson Aracin was out of school out two weeks. Right now we are in a deep freeze, it is -4 right now, but the sun is shining and it is not snowing for a change.

I cannot fine the pattern for the leaves but I think it is one of Ruth Perry's patterns. The Chrysalis is "Mys Terry" Hope Green's form the 2009 Palmetto Tatters CD. The bee is To Bee or not to Bee by Jane Eborall pattern for the 2009 CD. Palmetto Tatters. The Aster Flower is from the Feb. 1972 Workbasket I won from Sherry Mondo giveaway. I beleive it was a snowflake I cannot fine the pattern for but I will keep looking for it. So if any one knows please let me know.
These are all from the Palmetto Tatters 2009 Cd. Split Ring Lady Bug is by Martha Ess, "Bee-Dy" Amulet Bag is also Martha Ess's Love working both of them. The Precious Butterfly is by Hope Green. I did need to learn how the do HPL all over again. Have not done any in years. It is a good way to clean off some of my shuttles.

This one is from the Russian site that is on the Online Tatting Class. Getting the order of the rings was hard. But once I starting writing down each ring and chain. It was easier, especially when working back words on the rounds.
