The following pictures are my journey into designing a diamond shaped motif to enter into the Ring-of-Tatters competition this year. I will not post a picture of the final design that I am entering, I will save that until after the competition.
Designer of many tatting patterns. Simple method of beaded tatting. Flowers are my inspiration!

My dear friend, Stephanie, from across the pond, has very kindly test-tatted my Oval Doily. She has done it in a size 80 variagated thread, so that she could get the whole doily onto her scanner, as she doesn't have a digital camera.
Beautiful work, Stephanie!

I found this one the most difficult to decipher! I have not altered the pattern (although the original had more than one mistake, good thing there was a picture to study!) I have simply re-written it in modern tatting language.
