From Iris Niebach's "Tatted Doilies" this one is Beatrice. It's done in Coats Machine Quilting thread in a varigated red -- about size 100. The nice thing about this one is that it's worked all in one row. BUT -- what am I going to do with something this small? It only measures 3 3/4 inches in diameter. I'll have to look around and see who I know with a knick-knack shelf. :)
Tatting while listening to audio books is what I call relaxation. I get home from work, get dinner out of the way, then park myself in my favorite chair. I pick up my lap desk covered with shuttles, patterns, strings and beads, stick the earbuds in and say, "Checking out!" Nobody bothers me then -- until it's time to go ride the stationary bike, that is.
