SUMMARY- Pictures are big and clear enough you can count the stitches! Instructions are really well broken down and easy to read in symbolic notation. This is fairly traditional design work in ring and chain(no naked threads), and several split ring. The Beaded Teardrop would make really lovely earrings. The bunny is "lop-eared" and funny. The Filigree Heart is tatted around a finding. The Holly Leaf is a fairly solid motif(not just the usual outline of a leaf - this one has a worked center that fills the space well. Her teddy bear really works for me. Over-all, a good collection.

The Mini Christmas Tree works up really fast(I couldn't resist trying it once I was done with my reviewing "chores". I had no trouble and they look great!

It took a bit of sleuthing to track Betty down, but I'm so glad I persevered! She still teaches tatting in Northern Michigan and gives demos to promote the art.
