After yesterday’s post about how I’m not very sad about the tip breaking off my nicest shuttle I read today that Gina Brummet of Threads of a Tatting Goddess passed away yesterday evening.  I knew Gina only through the 25-motif challege and her blog, but was especially touched by her project of working through the DMC Tatting by Therese Dillmont.  Everytime I read about how she had adapted and modernized a new motif from the books I was amazed her ability to so clearly translate the pattern and turn it into something that looked so completely modern.  It was a ready inspiration to my own project with the Priscilla books and made me realize the possibilities that can be found in these older tatting books and the possibilities that become available when they are updated.  Every time I read one of her posts it made me want to pick up the shuttles and thread.

I’ve made a donation to the Antique Pattern Library in her memory as it seemed like the most apporiate way to honorher.

That is a wonderful idea. I will miss her.
