Here's my first attempt at tatting with fine thread. It's YLI cotton machine quilting thread in the mango colourway sent to me by Stacey Houston from Washington state. What pretty colours! The motif is a variation on the Patchwork design in Mary Konior's "Tatting with Visual Patterns" that I have borrowed from the local library. I say "variation" but we all know that I mean that I made some mistakes! Still, since the whole thing only measures about 3.5 cm across, it's hard to see the errors.
