A square design by Lene Bjørn from the book Tatting together square motifs edited by Iris Niebach. This one is made in DMC Cébélia size 30 in green and white. It needs blocking, I think. Besides that, the next one will have longer picots holding the rings in the four corners -- these are too small and make the arches look like dimples. Not that there's anything wrong with a good dimple. They just have to be in the right place.
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.
