Firus Transformed

Umi of Umi's Embroidered Gifts in Facebook tatted a bunch of the Firus motif from my book Elegant Tatting Gems and transformed them into a stunning doily.

She then cleverly adapted part of a pattern from Jan Stawasz's book Tatted Treasures into edgings to enclose the motifs, modifying the stitch count to fit around the centre piece.

I think Umi did great with this.

Umi is more well-known for her beautiful ribbon flowers which you can see in her flicker page.


  1. Beautiful!

    Umi's ribbon flowers are works of art!

    Fox. : )

  2. Wow just beautiful love to adapted and change things around myself!

  3. That is really beautiful!!! :)
    What a fabulous way to see a design of yours displayed!!! :)

  4. That's out-and-out beautiful! Gotta go hunt up my Elegant tatting gems and give this a try -- well something similar, anyway. :)

  5. Wow! She did a great job. It's beautiful!

  6. That is a fabulous doily! I've thought of joining your snowflakes to create a doily, but I didn't get past the initial thought. I guess I should have kept on thinking!

  7. Beautiful doily, and lovely colour thread, She did a wonderful piece of tatting with your motif.

  8. I am looking for a doily or motif which I make into a round tablecloth. Thank you Barbara
