Holiday Tatting Number three, no 7 of 25 motif challenge

The Sun is shinning with a few black clouds circling,  the washing is out and hopefully its going to dry in the breeze,  its lovely to have the sun with his hat on today.   Yesterday I had a table at the summer fair in the nursing home where my Mother lives,  the weather ruin the day,  it rained on and off and the wind was more like a winter gale.  They planned to have it in the garden as it was we were inside,   a bit cramped but who cared it was all in a good cause for the residents,  hopefully they all enjoyed the day.
This is the last post of holiday tatting,  I expect you are getting tired of holiday tatting,  but I thought I would leave these booties to last,  in fact they were the first items I tatted on holiday.
These booties are from a book which I keep hoping someone somewhere can tell which book,  I have a copy of the pattern,  the top of the page is marked Three-dimensional patterns,  I am sure they are not a Mary Konior  pattern as I have four of her books and they are not in them.   I used Lizbeth white no 20 and the ribbon is rainbow by Spiral.
I hope you are having a lovely  weekend and hopefully the sun is shining on you.
Take Care

  5. Could the book be from Workbasket classic patterns compiled by the staff of the Workbasket? Monica of Tat's It Tat's All blog just did a lovely pair in pink recently, and in her Oct 17 2008 post mentioned that's where she got the basic pattern. But who knows who the designer is! There seem to be some similar patterns out
    there! These are so pretty!

  8. Hi Margaret, Those booties are really gorgeous! Hugs Margaretha

  9. Hmmm, tatting sleuthing hat on -- it does look like the booty from the Workbasket magazine.

    (I had a photocopy of the Workbasket pattern back in the 80s when I was a new tatter. Never made it through the old notation!)

    Now I would rewrite it into short-form, so it would be easier to follow. Isn't progress marvelous?

    Your booties are incredible...truly inspiring!

  10. Oh how beautiful those booties are!! :)

  11. You did a very nice job on the booties. I believe these booties are from Tatting by Cathy Bryant.

  12. Margaret these are perfectly adorable, so delicate and pretty, oh I just love them.xxx
