Spent a lot of the weekend breaking threads. This is one that didn't break. It's Cornelia from Iris Neibach's "Tatted Doilies" (yes! I really like that book). This one is also in Coats machine quilting thread -- Rainbow colors. It might be a bit too bright. ;)
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.
