It now feels as if it will take forever to finish this Spring Doily...
I might not post again till it is finished.
The red Lizbeth is making me crazy: can you see the knot and the fuzz above it? In the second shot you can see how the thickness varies, which makes having good tension, particularly in chains, almost impossible to attain. Grrrr.....
One more thing: the red thread has broken twice. No pass! I will NOT buy more Lizbeth - any size.
The horse has bolted the gate, I realize, but at least I have not purchased a huge amount - just enough to keep me in tatting thread this next year!
However, in the future I will try other brands, as I am now totally done with this thread.
Dreaming about the nearly-here Canadian Spring, and a border pattern I have not yet tatted that will look good around Elena’s Russian hankie.
I have the perfect shade of Purple in #40 Lizbeth.
