cute and unusual

Maybe, some of my readers can remember that I tatted and diagrammed the edging #14 from the "Schiffchen-Spitzen", by E.Endrucks, a book from 1920. I tatted it as part of the "Endrucks 1920 Project", that is an international collaborative endeavour, with volunteer tatters presenting Frau Endrucks’ patterns in modern format, compiled here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/17LEVftXweztBIOWh4sL4BB7bX65ssoOsOn4oXIgCepY/view

I attached the edging #14 to a pram sheet, and I've also tatted a narrow version for the pillow's cover.


Those pics have been taken in March, when I sewed it:


Actually I'm out of exercise with the needle and my sight has worsened lately, but eventually I'm happy with it! It's a cute set!

We've discovered that Mrs Endrucks had her book published at the age of 36. She died when she was only 54. Read a short biography here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-LzBnvzj7azCWLXJACSvcNHegXfP4fv_/view

Her patterns are a great source of inspiration, even after 100 years! It isn't the "usual" tatting with wheels and rosettes, she was aware of her originality and wrote: "My book shows you the way out of the eternal monotony of all tatted lace so far"!

Here it is the link for the pattern of the narrow edging, that I tatted following just part of the edging in Endruck's book:

  1. Quite elegant - the broad as well as the narrow versions 👌💖
    So, have you found an alternate to the Feedburner issue? I followed the directions to download all email addresses, but when I finally open the file it is gibberish!
