My tatting treasure

This is my Paternal Grandmother's Tatted Doily
Tatted by Louise Goeller Reuter--born in 1900.  Probably tatted in the 1920's or 30's.
I learned to tat from my maternal grandmother, Julia Kominek Dolesh. 
I was so thrilled to get this.  I had seen this doily in my grandma's house probably 35 years ago, after I had learned to tat, but hadn't seen it since.  My Aunt Janelle had it and recently gifted it to me for my recent wedding.  It is truly a treasure to me.

I have small items that Grandma Julia tatted that I shall have to bring out and photograph and show off in the future.

  1. I too was taught to tat by my maternal GM. I would love to have a doily done by a grandparent - you are very lucky!
