This was our Mother's Day gift to her this year.
It was tatted using DMC white Cordonnet thread, size 80. The pattern is from "Tatted Handkerchiefs".
Because I do not live close to my mother I need to rely on the US Postal Service to get my card to her. As I do every year I went to the card store early and searched until I found the perfect one. Some years I have to search different stores until I find just the right one. But this year I found the card at the first store I checked. It was perfect because it said my feelings just as if I'd written them myself, but when I cried right there in the store, then I knew for sure.
This time finding the card was the easy part. Making the gift not so easy. But really only because tatting in size 80 thread is a struggle for me, the patterns in this book are diagrammed very nicely. (no written directions)
I'm sure my mother will enjoy it and I know she will understand the hours of love that went into making it special ......... just for her.
To My Mother
Happy Mother's Day, Mommsetta!
I love you with all of my heart! ~ Bonnie
An extra special greeting ......
Happy Mother's Day, Anita!
I hope your day is filled with love and that you spend it making memories.
I know your boys love you.
To all Mothers everywhere
I wish you each a "HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!"
Happy Tatting, Happy Life,
