But in the last OTC, Sue mentioned that book and -as always- she has that great talent to push me to look at old things with new eyes. I played with it, at first I replicated the medallion, then combined it with another pattern, that is the triangle in fig.23 from Tatting by Thérèse de Dillmont, available at www.georgiaseitz.com/public/dmclibtat.pdf - (I'm glad that I wrote this link in a previous post, as I've been getting mad to find it again!). That triangle is the base for a lovely bookmark, tatted by Robin, showed in her blog here: http://tattingbythebay.blogspot.com/2017/02/pattern-for-dillmont-inspired-bookmark.html
So, that's how I came to this pair of earrings:
Talking about medallions, I've been busy sewing booties with a pattern a friend gave me, from an old italian printed magazine, but it looked naked so I'm going to add the wheels left over from previous project. It's not yet finished and sorry that the photo is not the best, white on white doesn't show at all.
