New Handkerchief

My mother-in-law really likes hankies and always has one in her handbag or her pocket.  It's been too long since I made her a new hanky so as her birthday is coming up, out came my shuttles to tat an edging.  I was going to go for something more complex but in the end the shape of this simple design appealed to me - it's from Ann Orr's Tatting Book No. 35 revised.  I am tatting it straight onto the handkerchief, attaching it as I go.

Best wishes,

HAPPY NEW YEAR! (and apologies regarding patterns)

Happy New Year everyone, I do hope you had a wonderful holiday with family and friends and that 2023 is off to a good start!

I want to start my blogging new year with an apology:  over the last few years I've regularly had people contact me to say they were not able to access my free patterns.  I couldn't figure out what the problem was so I sent patterns to people who emailed me directly but...  I had not visited the gmail account linked to this blog for some time and have just found many many emails from readers asking for access to patterns and I didn't know they were there and I didn't answer them!

So MANY apologies to all the people who contacted me via the google docs system to ask for access to patterns and I unwittingly ignored you!  I have now re-uploaded all the links on my patterns page and I'd be grateful if people could test links and tell me if they now work.

Also if you ever need to contact me or still have problems accessing my free patterns, please do so via the "Contact Me" link in the right side bar of this page rather than through the links at google docs.

Again, I'm sorry to all the readers of this blog who didn't receive a response from me regarding patterns, it was really unintentional!  

I do hope it all works now and I would appreciate anyone testing the new patterns links and letting me know!

Very best wishes to all of you,
