patriotic dragonflies? - nuntium duocentesimum quadrigesimum quartum

My stepmom recently commissioned me to make several pairs of earrings and snowflakes for her.  The intention was for Christmas presents but that didn't work because I was swamped at school.  She was most gracious about it and still wants me to do them so here goes.

I laid out all of my vintage and non-vintage threads and asked her to choose what colors.  This is one of them for the dragonflies.  The pattern is from Jon Yusoff on this page.
This is a vintage J & P Coats thread, size "tatting cotton", color 162.

Wish I could have made them all today but French curriculum must come first.


  1. The pressure of work can be so annoying when you have a commission like this. It is good to have something that is quick and easy though and makes you want to tat them all day!

  2. Great dragonflies!!! :) I am sure everything will be fabulous!!! :)


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
