I'm tatting away on bracelets, Christmas presents for folks.
I made the black one with bugle bead centers and sterling silver findings. The navy one has the little silver middle beads, and some bigger ones I got Sunday at Michaels (I had a coupon for 15% off my order - woo-hoo!).
I have some final Palmetto Tat Days pictures for you. Sue Hanson came and brought some of the late, great Mary Konior's tatting. It seems that Mary's children placed no value on her tatting until she died. Mary had given the tatting to Sue, and Mary's children realized that there was some monetary value to the tatting, so they have demanded it all back. They plan to sell it off piecemeal. Sue was in tears when she told us this.
Sue brought tons of Mary's tatting and displayed it. I was in awe. I have three of Mary's tatting books, and many of these are the originals shown in her books. I've made some of these. None of mine hold a candle Mary's work.
I took pictures, and now I'm sharing.
See what I mean? Wow. Oh Wow.
