Fall is officially here now. After a miserably hot and drought stricken summer, the cool and rainy days of fall are welcome. It is time to turn our thoughts to tatting fall themed lace.
Heidi Sunday shared this "Pumpkins on a Vine" edging with the Online Tatting Class years ago, but the edging is as fresh as ever.
Sherry Townsend created an oval pumpkin shape that is the start of a little fall pin. Her pattern also introduces a short split chain.
Mary Maynard's pumpkin is rich with texture and even the stem is gracefully tatted!
Nancy Tracy's Sleepy Pumpkin has always been a favorite! Such a cute hostess gift it would make.
And Ruth Perry's (aka Rozelle Linden) Tatted Celtic Knot Pumpkin is so simple you could make them by the bushel full for Trick or Treat giving.
Next week we'll investigate autumn leaf tatting patterns. (Sneak peak: ).http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2007/leafforms.html).
Get out those shuttles and needle and thread up some of those gorgeous autumn shaded threads and get tatting!!
