I'm feeling satisfied now that I've completed my first tatting project of the new year, the Spinning Wheel glass mat from Tatting with Visual Patterns by Mary Konior. The thread is size 10 Lizbeth, #119, Jelly Bean.
For those of you interested in seeing the difference in thread sizes, these are in size 10, 20, and 80. The size 10 is 7", size 20 is 5.5", and size 80 is 3.5". They take the same amount of time to tat. The only difference is the finished size.
I do love this pattern! Maybe I should start another. :-)
