Mary Konior

It is HERE!!!   I ordered via listing.   Our local library
was not able to find a copy thru Inter Library Loan.  

Mary Konior:  A Pattern Book of Tatting c.1985

I kept checking (almost daily) to find a seller who would ship to USA + 
not charge oodles of $$.    This copy is in excellent condition.

First up - the Hen & Chick edge (can see photos on Diane's blog
post:    In the Pink    )

Our local library was able to obtain 
Tatting Patterns by Mary Konior
thru the Chicago Public Library.
I have it until April 8th.

Both are wonderful books - I need to get over this
dreadful cold bug so I can be shuttle happy!!!!

A good mail day .... my
OIDFA pin arrived

along with the new Bulletin.   
Nice to have a new issue to read while the rain, snow, continues outside.

I made this lovely origami bag for a GF.   I think she liked it.   

I entered it into the Spring Blog Hop, entry  #50.   Right now, it is 5th or 6th of 61 entries.    
If you get the chance, please VOTE!!!    Voting ends in 2 days.

A little bit o'green ....

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Pattern by Sharren
I used HH Lizbeth size 20, color 175 (Scottish Thistle)

I enjoy tatting this shamrock pattern.   This year, I had a  nifty tool (gift from Denise) to help with the SCMR:   hackle pliers.     I don't know how I ever tatted without them!!!
