Tatting - A Centerpiece from 1924


This centerpiece was published in the September 1924 issue of Needlecraft, and the instructions are here and here. I like the hens and chicks pattern used for the edging.

Just beautiful - wish I could do this sort of work. Am lucky to be able to single crochet, really.

Oh, darn - I get confuzzled with the two identities I have...Laura is associated with the history blog, AKA Lidian of Kitchen Retro.

This is lovely. The tatting part is similar to what I am working on now.

That's beautiful. Maybe I should find my tatting needles...
