Tatting From On-line Patterns

Several of the patterns today are fom on-line sources. I am trying to link to the appropriate web sites, but I don't always have the time to do so. I am also trying to colour code the links so that they are easier to find, using blue for challenge pages and purple for reference pages.

Diana has re-worked the snowman using different connection points for the rings. That looks good Diana, now lets see a slightly different variation. Larger rings, smaller chains, or replace the single rings with small cloverleaves or how about Josephine knots in place of the picots on the chains?

EeKoon has working on an edging in variegated blue Size 10 Floretta. The pattern is from Be-Stitched.

The Winter Rose from Teeny Tatted Snowflakes by Samantha Melnychuk is Jeanne's latest motif. Samantha began selling her patterns as a way to help finance her education. She used to post to the e-mail lists, but as her school workload increased she had less and less time. The link for her web site has been included, but the page hasn't been updated for 2 years.

Laura has been tatting some on-line patterns and today it's one of Jane Eborall's wonderful designs, a little butterfly worked in DMC #20 Cebelia. Jane has an awesome collection of patterns you can see here.

Note: Some of the pictures that have been posted include a lot of excess background and it's harder to fit the pictures on the page. I am assuming that if there's a lot of extra background "noise" it's because you don't have the software to easily crop the images. So that I can fit things in, I'm going to start croping out the extra background. People will see the real thing when they go to your page which I am linking the pictures to anyway.
