More from the Fringe...

Man, can work get in the way of what you want to do. Really wanted to have posted earlier but time just got away from me.

I was lucky enough to have won 3 raffle draws that weekend in Cambridge. This book is one of my favorite prizes. I do not have any old collector tatting books so I guess this will be my start.
The other prizes were a little photo book with hand cream and a gift basket full of many lovely thing as threads, storage box, candy and a tatting shuttle.

I have been busy tatting some doilies, snowflakes and bookmarks for a sale my girl friend is having in November. Thought I should get some things done now before life gets to busy again.

I also purchased this book by Heather Lickley who has written for the Ring of Tatters about Elgiva Agnes Nicholls. A very interesting lady and a good read. Heather comes over from the UK each year for the Fringes workshops. She is a lovely lady.

Well that is all for now. But I know that when I push the publish post button I will think of something else I wanted to say. It will have to wait until next time.

Tat on.


  1. Thanks for updating us with your lovely post. I have never seen the book by Heather Lickley, but am a big fan of the late Elgiva Nicholls' tatting. Where might I go to find a copy? (Can resist a good tatting read!)

  2. P.S. I have a copy of that old collector tatting book too! Love it!

  3. That's an awesome old tatting booklet! I have 4 from the same series (top photo). Very cool I would've loved to have gone to something like that!

  4. Now, I am back! This time I could kick myself for only noticing the booklet from the 40's the last time I visited! LOL!

    See, now I am on a hunt for all things Elgiva Nicholl's. I've managed to acquire 3 of the 4 tatting books she's published (3 of the 4 that I know about) and would love to know more about her. Do you know where I could get myself a copy of this booklet on her life and career as a tatter that you have in the bottom photo???
