Home of the FREE because of the Brave

Veterans day is this weekend.  If you live in the United States of America thank a veteran for your freedom.  Many of their friends died in combat to ensure that you remain free.  Many served, some got to come home.

My dad was an ambulance driver in France during WWII.  My brother served in the army in the 50s and 60s including in Vietnam.  My husband served in Vietnam.  I am free.  Thank you.

New free pattern, actually it’s a very old pattern – just updated.

From 1887 “The Lace Tatting Book” on pages 27-28.
It’s called Lace Insertion.

Riego style Celtic woven picot edging.

I am a retired IT professional who enjoys designing tatted lace. I learned tatting from my mother when I was very young. I have written a number of tatting books under the pen name Rozella Florence Linden. My husband and I have five kids, seven grandkids, and our first great grand daughter will be a year old in December 2018. We live in Tampa FL.

  1. Love this! Thanks a lot for the pattern! That scmr was what I thought when I saw it, thank you for writing down it in updated and clear instructions, it’s something I’d love tatting. Just curious… Have you used a needle or a long tail of 2nd shuttle’s thread all the time? I still have to try my idea to tat both sides up and down at the same time, 4 shuttles, so that you wave picots “on the go” in scmr with full shuttles, without unwind. What do you think?

    1. You are welcome. I used two “bobbin shuttles” and did unwind the one to weave through the picot. Interesting thought to try 4 shuttles. I’d love to see a pic when you try it.
