I finished the Russian Mignonette pattern and had fun with it. The thread was DMC #8 Perle and I did enjoy tatting with it. I suppose on a large project it could be problematic, as it frays when un-tatting is called for, but it is lovely for a small design that can be soft and rather plush.
It was a bit of a squeeze to prevent that last row from frilling. Usually I don’t block with pins, but I had to in this case. It was worth the effort.
Mr G was very interested in that measuring tape! He loves to watch it retract and I can see the brain whirling as he fixates on it. Very cute.
