Another Mary Konior Book
When my sister-in-law saw this book, she remembered how excited I was about finding Tatting with Visual Patterns, so she bought it for me.

There are also names familiar to tatters, such as Anne Orr and Mlle Riego. So I come away with a greater appreciation of the links between crochet and tatting. Thanks, Clare Gaylard.
