ANTIQUE PATTERNS EVERYWHERE!!

 Ever have one of those moments on the Internet, where you see a picture, link over to another website, and another, and another, and before you know it you've got a millions tabs up and don't remember where you started in the first place?!?!

That totally happened to me this afternoon.

From John's Tatting Blog
 I saw this picture on Pinterest from John's tatting blog. Be sure to check out his blog; his tatting pieces are GORGEOUS! So after seeing this picture I Google Searched antique patterns and came across this website........














 I found this website; the Antique Pattern Library! They even have a Yahoo Group you can join!

 I picked a DMC Tatting Library book to download and just look at some of the pretty goodies that are inside!! Once again, we are forecasted for 9" of snow (we usually get around half of what the weatherman predicts) so it's time for a snowstorm project!

 The directions are all in English (some of the books are in French) and HERE is the link for the book I picked out. It's just like going to the library and picking up a new book, except you get to keep these and print them off!

 OH! and a huge 'Thank You' to everyone who commented on my previous post about the Purple Antique Doily! I'll be sure to post more pictures soon! I'm half way done with the second-to-last round! Have a great week everyone!

Thank for the link to a great book, some of those patterns are beautiful. I think I will be trying some of those when I have time.
I look forward to seeing which ones you try and post.

Serendipity--I was cleaning up downloaded files last night and happened on this same book--made the little motif on the upper right. Directions need a bit of translation, but worth it!

Cathy: How fun is that?! I made the same one this morning. It was a different look to it that I really like.
Have a lovely day ladies! :)
