Motif # 16The pattern is from a book called "Festive Tatting" published by DMC in 1982. Now 1982 is not so vintage to me, since I had already graduated from high school by then, but it's pretty old by some standards.

Not a TIAS post
I know everyone has been blogging about the TIAS, as have I, but I have been doing other tatting besides the TIAS. Over the last month or so I have been shopping on e-bay for vintage thread and pattern books. As a result, I have been channeling my inner 20th century tatter and have been tatting vintage patterns with vintage thread and vintage shuttles. It's like I'm in a tatting time warp, tatting back in the 1940's or 50's. Then I look up at the HD TV, or check my smart phone and I realize I am in the 21st century. Here is the first two rounds of an Anne Orr doily in vintage white Star tatting thread size 70.
