SUMMARY- Celtic knotwork Monograms! The watch band incited immediate lust in my heart. The round medallion on the cover isn't among the patterns in the first edition, but was added(*) in the revised edition. You get some really lovely patterns that aren't like anything else. Ms. Linden gives permission to sell finished pieces made from her patterns(and you already credit the designer, right?)

I got a lovely e-mail from Ruth, and permission to pass information on from it(Thank you, Ruth!):

FIRSTLY:
Mrs. Perry has a new website: https://tatting.wordpress.com/

SECONDLY:
"My pen name, Rozella Florence Linden, was chosen because I did not want to publish a book with my x husband's last name. It is my grandmother's first name, my mother's middle name and my sister's favorite tree. Both of my grandmothers tatted, and my sister and I learned from our mother. For my first 20 years or so everyone I knew who tatted was in my family, or had been taught by someone in my family. Tatting was a "lost art" and almost no one knew how to do it.

I had promised my grandmother that I would not let the art of tatting disappear. I think I have done my part, but back in the 1950s when I learned there were NO tatting books available, just a few booklets from the thread companies and patterns in Workbasket. Patterns were passed down from person to person, and many tatters just kept a notebook of what they knew how to tat. I tried to find a tatting book through the library loan program at my local public library and was told there were NO books on tatting available anywhere. Things have changed, and I truly enjoy seeing all the many wonderful books available today. I have tried to encourage new designers, and new tatters."

THIRDLY:
"I revised my self-published books so that they would be available in print when I can no longer do the self-publishing. I added patterns, corrected misprints, and added/improved photos where necessary to make the books more complete and easier to understand.

I am currently working on putting as many of my patterns into book collections as I can so that the Patterns will always be available.

There is a revised edition of the Celtic Tatting Design Journey book that does include the round medallion that is on the front cover. It had formerly been a separate self-published work."
