From the February issue there was only one page that interested me. At the top is a tatted baby bonnet, and at the bottom a vandyke border.
If this looks familiar, it is the same border that was in the April 1916 issue. Now the designer has worked out how to turn the corner. It's funny, considering how many issues I'm missing, that I should have the two that both have this border.
On to the November issue.
Sometimes you could mail-order the materials to make the items shown, as with this hen-and-chicks hanky. If I understand it correctly, you could buy the embroidery pattern to stamp or transfer onto your own fabric, or you could buy the hanky with the pattern already on it. For 57 cents, you could get the hanky, embroidery floss, and tatting thread.
Interestingly, it does not say that the tatting instructions come with it, nor are they given anywhere in the magazine. They must have just assumed that everyone knew how to make hen-and-chicks. If you didn't, of course, you could always write to the editor, and she would tell you; I've noticed a lot of the letters to the editor are requests for patterns.
Yoke or collar. This pattern doesn't do so much for me.
This would be the same Anne Orr who also wrote several tatting books and invented the split ring.
And I know you're all planning to serve a Crown of Roast Pork for Thanksgiving, right?
