The pictures are of three mats that are on my craft table, I don't sell very many but its makes the table different and gives the table a something different to sell.
These are simple to make and I must confess they are from a pattern.
I used to take the magazine called "Anne" they used print it in English but a couple of years ago they finished saying it was costing too much money. I started collecting the magazines in 1972/3 and have every copy since then until they stopped printing them. The German patterns for knitted lace are not written out like the English pattern, they are on graph and are followed line by line, in fact although it sounds hard they are quite easy once you have master it and done a few items.
They also have a lot of tatting patterns, tatting patterns in this country are very difficult to get so they were the main source for me to get new patterns from. I am going to take some photos of my tatting for you to have a look at. but that is for another day.
I hope you enjoyed reading today's blog.
