FREEDOM!

Forgive me as it has been a while since I posted anything. I really need to do better. This year I've turned over a new leaf, gotten rid of a job and boss that I hated and went to work for a rival company (long story) where they treat me like a human being instead of a machine. Now have more time to devote to my tatting and all those in my life. Isn't freedom from oppression wonderful? It has been a long time since I have really felt like me and it is great to have my soul back. I do feel sorry for the buggers who are left! I think Mel Gibson/Braveheart said it best FREEDOM!
Ok I have done enough rambling....

Here is a wonderful site with antique patterns that I like to use for edgings on christmas ornaments and there are a couple of snowflake patterns as well. If you click on the link in the beginning when it comes up it should direct you back to a full library of old works.
Hope you find some thing interesting to tat. I like #12 in this booklet.
Hope to post some pics soon with some items I have been working on!

Thanks for the link to Dillmon's beautiful patterns! I love the Antique Pattern Library! Enjoy your tatting and hopefully we'll all get to see some of the beautiful things you are tatting out of that book! :)
