A tribute to Gina

Hi,
There was a request to put a piece of tatting on the blogs today in tribute to Gina (The Tatting Goddess) who died last Monday.
Well here is my piece, its the first time I have done this pattern, it strange the first piece never looks its best and its a long time since I did netting.
The pattern is one of Gina's Netted Hearts, its not my best piece of tatting and it needs blocking but at the moment I am suffering from a bug and was sent into hospital last Sunday night for a few hours, whatever the bug is its really taken its toll on me so please excuse my tatting. I wanted to do a piece in honor of Gina. I never meet her and I only found her blog last year but she gave a lot of inspiration to every tatter around the world.
My thoughts are with her family at this sad time.
Here is a link to her blog
May you rest in peace and tat with the angels, and if they can't tat I am sure she will teach them. Margaret

  3. Dear Margaret,
    Do rest and get better soon. Your netted heart is pretty. The colour you chose is so soothing. I must try this pattern soon.

  4. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and tatting in tribute to Gina Brummett, especially since you've been down with a bug yourself. Please feel better as soon as you can.

  5. I hope you are feeling better soon, Margaret. Gian had a box of beetles all ready to send but I decided to write a note instead...

    So glad you posted a pic of Gina's netted heart. I had forgotten that I had this little piece - the only pattern of hers that I have tatted!

    When i saw yours, I immediately pulled out my box of saved tatting and there it was. This is one I shall keep. ( The Boss gets a lot of old ones for her "artwork".) Thank you.
    Take good care,
    Fox : )
