This is actually six motifs and an edging. It's one of Jan Stawasz's designs from Tatting: Theory and Patterns. The thread is one strand of Gütermann 100% cotton sewing thread and one strand of Signature machine embroidery thread. It measures just 4.5 inches by 6 inches (11.5 cm by 16 cm).
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.
