Jon wrote; "The Lace Mat is the first pattern by Norma Benporath that I tatted. It was published in The Queenslander on 16th March 1938 (the Trove site sometimes has technical difficulties so you may not be able to see the actual tatting shown in the newspaper). I have now completed the chart and am happy to share it here".
Shuttle tatted in Lizbeth size 20 thread, color: #100 Falling Leaves. Many thanks to Jon and others who had wonderful suggestions and ideas on how to improve the original pattern. I most say I learn a lot from working on this!
