Our beloved Mary Konior has passed away.
I typed "Mary Konior" into my blog search and was surprised at how many times I have posted about her and her patterns. All those posts can be found here.
I was fortunate enough to have viewed lace tatted by her own hands, but not fortunate enough to ever have met her in person even though it had been a secret wish these last few years to do so. I hope she knows that she has inspired a whole new generation of tatters and that tatting is going strong and GROWING strong with a great deal of that credit belonging to her.
This photo is not new to my blog but it remains one of my favorite tatted pieces I have ever done. This cross is now in the home of another very special lady. So the love just keeps spreading.
Thank you Mary!
