Revisit ...

... tatting patterns from Sophie T. LaCroix.  

  I tried a couple edging patterns in 2013.   Link to post and photos HERE.    Once finished (homework) Youngburg patterns, I thought I'd pull out the LaCroix edge patterns and try them again.    The vintage patterns are great.

Edging or Insertion No. 1143.     I used size 20 Lizbeth fiber.   The top with 138 [greens] and 683 [yellows].    It is nice to have the green on one side and yellow on other - done by switching shuttles after each set of ring/chain.   The lower 620 (pink) + 138 (greens) where I used the shoe lace trick to keep all the rings pink and chains green.   Same pattern, different color results.   

Edging No. 1114.  I used size 20 Lizbeth fiber.   The top 164 (teal/green mix) + 661 (teal), switch shuttles to keep colors separate at the top and bottom.   The lower is done with 621 (pink) + 138 (greens) - to keep rings pink and chains green, used the shoe lace trick.    Same pattern, both ways are pretty. 

 I have these patterns from Helping Hands Newsletter (s) - subscription thru Handy Hands   .

 They are also found on line at the Antique Pattern Library.    Link HERE.   
I have been saving the little tatted samples.  That way, when I want to use the edge in the future, I have piece in hand for reference.
