Jeff has designed this small motif called Sine Wave Star, so before other projects took over I managed to tat it. Of course there are many important conditions when using other people's patterns and Jeff does mention them above the instructions to his pattern
Yesterday we went to see some wood at a local funeral directors. I know quite a few in the area because of my work, and yes the wood was originally purchased to make coffins! There isn't time to hand make coffins anymore and so what we witnessed was a considerable pile of timber stored in a huge garage, much bigger than our garage! It has been there for about 11 yrs now and there are a few spiders who have made their home around it. We were amazed at how much timber there was, mostly mahogany. It looks like some of it may end up in the form of tatting shuttles but there is certainly too much for us to purchase and for that matter store!
So sharing patterns reminds me that I must complete the button necklace pattern that I designed.
