pride and prejudice

Do you have any prejudice against my laziness? I can hear your hearty laugh looking at my new pattern in flickr: yes, it is exactly that, only a cloverleaf pattern!! (or trefoil, how do you call it?) I admit, I'm quite ashamed for putting a copyright on it!!

But, then, here it is, the pattern for the edging  with curled onion rings:

I'm quite proud, instead, of my "new tatter" friend Rosalba. She started tatting in January, and now she's almost independent. As a little reward (and because she decided to put tatting aside for a while and start learning bobbin lace) I gave her the first book by Annamaria, "Chiacchierino, i gioielli", very cheerful and full of lovely tatted jewellery (

This tatting was done by Rosalba:
Just to say sorry and to receive your forgiveness for not having new tatting by myself, I'd like to give you a link to an absolutely wonderful site of tatting, by a master of tatting in Ukraine, Elena Ignatova:
