Hello tatters! It is the third week of January already. The year is moving fast. How many projects have you got lined up for this year? Going to learn some new techniques. Are you adding beads to your lace? If you are looking for ideas to add a special touch to your tatting, please consider the following books. This is the second part of the list from Jan. 02, 2012. http://www.bellaonline.com/newsletter/tatting.|
Occhi Ruth Scharf (German)
Occhi: Neue Blätter (New Leaves) Ruth Scharf (German)
Review: http://www.georgiaseitz.com/reviews/scharf.html The works of Ruth Scharf are translations of Irish Crochet forms into tatting. The leaves are striking in any piece of lace.
Occhi 1 & 2 Gisela Graff-Hofgen (German)
This book has a pattern using 6-12 shuttles!
OCCHI-Schiffchenspitze-Frivolite Marianne Langwieser & Tatiana Scharowa (German)
Review: Several pages of instructions using modern photographs and reprints from antique books. Photographs and diagrams for all patterns. Many traditional style tatting patterns which are accompanied by suggestions for application as fashion accessories. Also sections on the split ring and on bead work. Final chapter encourages a foray into freeform tatting. (Patterns easy to follow from diagrams, knowledge of German not necessary.)

This tatter is also a professor of mathematics. She wrote to me once saying that some of her designs were based on the chaos theory.
