This is the first book. Ellen tatted the butterflies you see.
Inside, a pocket page with hand tatted flowers -
Another pocket with tatting & some words inside.
The back. I love her tiny 'handmade by'! Click for details.
A second book made from 12" x 12" papers
There is a better photo on Ellen's blog.
Below I used Photoshop to put together 4 pages
with Ellen's tatting that are in the second book.
Ellen also made a fabric book -it's wonderful!
The back -
And a beautiful book mark for me!
Thank you so much Ellen.
I have never seen tatting close up before. I think it is so delicate and absolutely beautiful! It's wonderful that you created so many pieces of tatting to go into your books for our swap. Lucky us!! I am glad your mail did not take too long to get here and you made it with over a week to spare. Thank you for joining us!
