Tatted Edging

I've been working on this bit of edging. It's done with size 80 tatting thread...very fine and difficult to work with. The pattern is my own design...I find that I don't forget to do picot joins on my own designs. Yes the needle is bent but it works just fine...it's a very thin needle.

I joined the baggie swap that Sandie is doing over at abeautifulcraft... check it out if you haven't seen it yet. I am adding several of my tatted pieces to each baggie.

Hopefully I can find (make?)time to sew up a few cq hearts and do some embroidery this weekend. I have had such a good time tatting and teaching myself to crochet that the embroidery has been neglected for sometime now. I want to learn how to do thread crochet but I can see it is going to take longer to learn than the tatting did. LOL (:o)
