This little one with 12 points caught my attention so I just played around with it and came up with this:
Now, what I'd like to know is: are these ornaments easy for people to find? Is it worth publishing patterns that require an added "doodad" or should I stick to patterns with just tatting (maybe the occasional bead)? Oh wait, I know, I shall adapt it so you can tat it with or without ornament though it's true in this case, the ornament adds a lot to the prettiness of the design.
So far I'm not having much success finding the "doodads" here in the UK but then I'm not even sure what to Google for! What name should I put in the search box to see if I can find these "components"? I'm sure they must be available here somewhere! I'll keep trying.
I got these off a market stall in our village some time ago. I shall have to check if the lady still comes around next market day.
Oh, and anyone to test-tat the Square Elegance pattern? You must have square ornaments 1.5cm wide (5/8"). I'll send the pattern to the first 2-3 who respond. Thank you!
