Little tatting (I mean small!!!)
I do mean small. I'm not use to tatting with size 80 thread but thought I would give it a try. I think it is a little harder to needle tat with small threads. I do have an ultra thin needle for this type of thin thread but I find it is hard to hold on. This will be Motif #6
With a lot of people tatting hearts I thought I would put my one cent in. I did make two of these hearts for a pair of earrings for myself. They are from Rachel Jackson pattern called Celtic Valentine Heart Earrings.
I also tatted this heart in Altin Basak.
This will be Motif #7.
This doily is called "That Medallion Again". It makes you go back to the first medallion we all learned when we first started to tat. This will be Motif #8
And I must say, I'm so spoiled. When visiting my best friend Pat today she gave me this beautiful table cloth. She bought it about 25 years ago at an estate sale and knew that by giving it to me it would be treasured. It will be very very treasured, much like her friendship!!!!! Thanks Pat.
