Doodles in the mail ....

Spent some time tatting yesterday + these are in the mail ... for Palmetto Tatters

I tried the Dragonfly Pattern from Jon's Tatting Patterns Blog (without the beads) and they came out great.  There are more Flutters, too.    (another of Jon's patterns)     Jon must sprinkle magic on her patterns, as I find them easy to follow.   Included in the mix of bugs ... is Jane's Cherry Blossom Pattern.  I need more practice with it!

Special thx to Sheron who compiled a spreadsheet of Tatting Doodle Patterns.  She encourages us to share this information with others!   Job well done Sheron ; )

Sheron defines a doodle as:

What is a doodle? To me a doodle is something that takes just a few yards of thread, something you can make to finish off the thread left on a
shuttle after you finish a project, something that takes 30 minutes or less for most tatters, something that can be recognized when a stranger looks at it, something you give away.

They're so colorful and pretty! I think that's a great way to use up thread left over from a larger project.
