Pattern: Onion Ring by Wally Sosa Thread: Coron #40 thanks to ♥Suneeti♥
Just look at the ROLL TATTING! I had my doubts before tackling this, which I completed at work yesterday at lunchtime. Surprisingly I tatted it in two short sittings, and must say, enjoyed it immensely! Thanks Wally!

Sis flew into town yesterday and we have already had an in-depth "projects" show and tell. She is a noted quilter from Calgary and of course very knowledgeable about thread. She brought me some Vivaldi #35, (That would be VALDANI - THANKS MAUREEN! I am an old flutist.... what can I say!))whatever that means. It is like a thin #80 so I doubled it in matching sections to be sure the variegated parts were not too uneven. I tatted till two o'clock last night.
Because Sis is interested in how the thread would look, I have to give her these simple, little samples (even though I missed a bead in one!) But, I will also give her one of my bigger, more finished pieces... pride demands it!)
I mean, she gave me a quilt - and actually said to me she expected a tatted gifty in the Valdani by the morning. A joke to be sure, but I have to reciprocate as tatting is small but mighty! So, this is what I came up with:
It is still fairly early and I have no work today. Sis and I are meeting up for dinner and I plan to have another little tatted goody in my new BLUE beads (Sis LOVES beads too!) and the new Vivaldi...
The Cat has issues with today's post?
