Heathers: Harriet Experimentation

Harriet Experimenting
Experimenting with just the points from the inspiration pattern – with a bit of my own favourite clover added to the tip of the points.

I’m quite pleased with the results of taking the points from the inspiration medallion, adding my own favourite 3-5-3 clover to the tips of the points, and calling it a snowflake!

This pattern came together quite easily. So my drive to get 6 easy snowflake patterns created within about a week has worked! They’ve all seemed to come together logically.

This 4 pointed doily from the book Anne Orr Tatting #35 is the inspiration for Harriet

Once again I go to an old tatting pattern book: Anne Orr Tatting #35 for inspiration. I like the points on this four sided medallion. I will experiment with making a six-pointed snowflake from the points I see here.

Heathers: Helga Inspiration & Experimentation

Greta Inspriation
Sometimes working on changes to one pattern creates a whole new idea.

While experimenting with the Hannah pattern I’ve stumbled on something I think will look very nice, but is not the Hannah pattern.

The two points at the bottom in this image are the keepers. The new centre is good – it turns the centre from Hannah inwards, so the rings start in the centre and makes a new row. And the points will give the diamond shapes I was wanting to have in Hannah that didn’t quite work out.

This will be a whole new design called Helga.

Heathers: Hannah Inspiration

Hannah Inspiration
An table top doily from the pattern book Tranditional Tatting Patterns was the inspiration for Hannah.

The open and airy pattern combined with the points (with the diamond shape) on this doily are very appealing for me. The Hannah snowflake will be open and airy, and those diamond shaped points will need to be incorporated.
