Motif #13

This is another 'sample' edging I did while deciding which one was going to be used for a large project.  This classic tatted 'wheel' is one of my favorites.  I sometimes use large thread (size 10, size 3) and use these wheels as coasters.  Size 3 thread is great for that purpose - it's thick and soaks up the drips that form on the outside of glasses of iced tea in hot weather.  It was late afternoon when we went outside to take a picture - you can probably see the shadows under the lace.  This was tatted with size 40 Lizbeth in "Pink Parade."

i love this! Immedietely had visions of "things" for my little 6 month old niece... I will have to find some thick thread. I believe Wallmart carries SouthMaid... I coukd use that! Oh much to tat...plan...dwell upon!

I have always enjoyed that kind of pattern as well. I find them relaxing. : )

Very pretty! I hadn't thought of using size 3 for coasters. Maybe I'll give it a try!
