As my kitchen renovation carries on (and on and on) I am continuing on with creating new patterns (so I’m not risking getting dust into anything I want to keep as final). So I’m thinking another pincushion!
This inspiration piece is from a German pattern book called Neue Schiffchenspitzen. The book is very old – I found it online at: Georgia Seitz
I like the clusters of rings and the big swoop chains around them. I didn’t count the number of stitches in the pattern, and I don’t bother trying to read patterns on the old pieces I use for inspiration too much. The patterns are frequently wrong in these old books.
So I will create my own pattern from here. J is next in my list of names for tatting patterns, so I think this will be Jackie. I’ve known some really great women named Jackie.
