Lots of frilly picots in blue variegated hand quilting thread backed with white cotton thread, gold beads, and gold-headed pins. It's a little busy, but fits the ornament well. I have no idea where this pattern came from. I copied it from an ornament I made years ago and don't remember if I made it up or adapted it from a doily center. If you recognize it, leave me a comment so I can give attribution.
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.
