This is not my favorite design in Christel Weidmann's Tatting: 60 Original Lace Treasures, although it was a quick and easy tat. I think part of the problem was that my picots are too large for the size thread (size 80 Coats & Clark), and I was trying to make consistent picots with my gauge. I'd have been better off eye-balling my picots. I've learned that I do not like using my bone shuttle from India with size 80 thread... the shuttle is too heavy. I think I'll stick with my Clovers for the extra fine threads. I haven't decided if I'll try this one again in a heavier thread or move on to Design 6. For now, I think I'm just going to say good night!
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
