MP: With the falling of leaves
- HI All
I just had to rave a bit. I got something delight from my friend
Karey Solomon in the mail for sharing some of my lessons with her
group with a sweet thank you card from the members who took the class.
Two of her published booklets. I am so jazzed.
Her booklet called "Tatting turns over a new leaf" (c) 2005. It's
packed with some really awesome leaf patterns for anyone who is
looking for different types of leaves to tat. For example: Oak Leaf,
Geranium Leaf, Pine Needles & Pine Cone,Silver Maple Leaf, Ginko Leaf,
Hop Hornbeam Leaf, Horn Chestnut Leaf and my personal favorite the
Sassafras or Mulberry Leaf, she also includes techniques like the Lock
Chain and Floating chain in this booklet. Her instructions are easy
to follow and models are photographed beautifully. All done in half
page size in 30 pages.
The other surprise was Shutteworth Cottage (c) 2006. This booklet is
a is just amazing. Karey put together a picture scape of a cottage
all done in tattings. She shows you step by step how to construct
this cottage in from beginning to end. For anyone who enjoys Helma
Siepmann's floral work or making tatted pictorial work this one is so
inspirational. This booklet has 50 pages in the half page size.
With Christmas coming I thought I would mention these two books as
suggestions for stocking stuffers, but then again who needs Christmas.
They are worth it anytime of the year!!! If you are interested in
inquiring how to get the booklets for yourself or someone else
possibly for a holiday exchange, contact Karey Solomon at
thread#empacc.net, (replace # with @) for more information.
Since I can see a couple of these leaves worked in Beanile fashion,
being inspired by Nina's pattern "Autumn in Connecticut", I will
recommend visiting Nina Libin's website for her Lace Periodicals as
well. I love Nina's work too and her publications would also make
nice gifts for the coming holiday season. http://www.beanile.com
Often I am asked what to get for a tatter and or what a relative
should think of. I hope this helps someone find something kool that
will be appreciated. We have some really great talent out there, this
email would be really very long if I didn't stop here in listing my
