SUMMARY- This is the last of the Ribbonwinners Series I needed to complete my set, and I apparently saved the best for last - though I'm a really big fan of "Tatting Talk" too. There is so much packed into the pages of this book, it's going to take me a week to read and "unpack" it all. There are a lot of designers in here that I've never heard of, and quite a few that I've heard of but never seen any of their work. It is international in scope and breathtaking in its breadth of designers. There are so many cool patterns here I have no idea where to begin. It has become hard to find, but Georgia says a reprint is being considered. I hope she does so. It is now going for $75 on ebay(as of this writing Jan. 2015). Not only is it crammed full of diverse and creative patterns, it has a bibliography! Of Newsletters!! I had no idea there were so many tatting newsletters being published. I've got a lot of the magazines that have carried tatting patterns covered, but had knowledge of only a small handful of newsletters. OH!!! and BOOKS!!!! Patterns listed under the cover scan are in alphabetical order by designer, so it should be fairly easy to scan for your favorites. Reading the list of patterns will give you a small idea of the cornucopia you get between the covers of this gem. I'll be cuddling with this one for hours and hours, stroking it and calling it "precious". People will look at me funny and take a couple of careful steps away when I spontaneously cackle at the thought of it waiting for me when I get home from the grocery store. BWAAHaheheheheh hem. Yes, okay, out of my system. Nothing to see here. Move along.
