Last night, I am pleased to report, we had a rip-snorting good time at The Fiber Gallery. The official topic was photography; but before the class one of the students, Sabrina, pulled out something she'd brought to show me.
This is Sabrina's Romanian grandmother, Regina Weber.
When Mrs. Weber passed away earlier this year at age 87, she left behind a legacy.
Some of the pieces were knitted.
Others were crocheted.
Still others appeared to be–to our eyes anyhow–a mix of crochet and...tatting? Are those rings tatting, perhaps? Sabrina's not sure.
Do any of you out there recognize this sort of work? Can you tell us about it?
One thing is certain: Mrs. Weber was an accomplished needlewoman. I feel lucky to have seen her work. Thank you, Sabrina!
