Tatted edges

This is Fig.99* in the Complete Book of Tatting by Rebecca Jones.   I used Lizbeth size 40 Col. 646 and Flora 50 Col. 592.

This is Marguerite in the book A Pattern Book of Tatting by Mary Konior.  I used Flora size 50, Col. 592 and Anchor 40 Mercer Crochet, Col. 0893.  I really really (did I say really?) like the Anchor color of this fiber.  I'm not sure if any other fiber has this shade.   

*As the fibers were two different sizes, I added a few more DS and P to the green chains.

The Dusting of Snow, tatted snowflake is so pretty.   Have you seen it on Facebook?   https://www.facebook.com/169640483630604/photos/a.536941153567200/699252574002723/?type=3&theater
