Tatted Hat Magnet

In March, my beloved mother passed away.  She introduced me to sewing, tatting, quilting, counted cross-stitch, crocheting, and tole painting, and so much more.  For most of the month of April, my sister and I have been going through her sewing room and her quilting room (she had two!).  It has been less difficult than I thought because of so many happy memories this brings.  But it’s also been much more difficult physically and time-wise than I expected.  We’ve spent more than 30 hours on this so far, and now my own home is in need of some serious organization and rearranging.

As a result, creating a new pattern this month just hasn’t been a possibility.  The pattern for this month is not my own, but was designed by DeDe B.  She sent it to me a few months ago and gave me permission to send it to you.  I’ve been saving it for a busy month when I would have trouble getting a new pattern designed.  I can’t thank DeDe enough!

I’m not positive what thread this pattern uses, but it appears to be Lizbeth Size 20 thread. The hat is approximately 3 inches (8 cm) across.
