This rose is inspired by, and dedicated to, Georgia Seitz, (AKTATTER). We all know how much Georgia has meant to the tatting community. I owe her an awful lot. Her's was the first book I bought after my initial "Tatsy" book which finally taught me the "flip." She inspired me with the 3D rose concept and didn't stop "urging" me along until I accomplished it. Thank you Georgia!
This is one of the things I had to keep secret for so long and I am so pleased to be able to show it to you now. The booklet with this pattern, and many others, can be purchased by emailing Teresa at:
The name of the booklet is "Flowers of Lace Put a Smile On Your Face." It was part of this year's fundraiser at Palmettos Days.
I hope you will enjoy it.
By the way, it is also a snowflake. That's how it originally started. It is hanging on my Rainbow Tree right now, along with a couple of prototypes.
