SUMMARY- There are only 7 tatted edgings, with 1 insertion and a medallion. I'm not usually all that jazzed by the average crochet edging, but this book has some truly exquisite finds. If you like to crochet, I'd hunt down a copy of this one. Here, also, is one of those rare instances where the thread manufacturer gave credit to their designer.
