I'm so glad I snipped off round 3 and tatted it again! I made the picots on the rings slightly larger, and it now it's nice and flat. One of my Facebook friends asked me to put a Clover tatting shuttle next to my tatting to give it a frame of reference. So, here you see the first three rounds of Renulek's Napkin Marta next to a small Clover shuttle. I love the delicate look of the size 80 thread!
Some new shuttles arrived in the mail today! These are my latest acquisitions from Shuttle by Design. Rita is going to be at Palmetto Tat Days, so I'll get to meet her! The excitement is building. I can't believe that I'm going to get to meet tatters whose work I have admired for years. I wish all of you could be there!
