Frywolitkowe, Occhi or Tatting, Tip for Netting Length

This doily is called Dandelion


I also love the square shape she formed in the middle of the doily
(New Poppy Painted Shuttles from St.Peters burg Russia)

This is my method of measuring long lengths of thread that are not picots and used for netting look.
A washable marker a ruler or a gauge. 

Makes a perfect place to start your rings this is size 40 thread.

My grandchildren love these seed pods called helicopters and to throw them it's that time of year for them to fall off the trees!
If you are interested in buying her pattern her blog is listed in picture and she is on Instagram too.

I love it and it it so delicate and lovely and good thread makes difference in tatting, all cotton  mercerized 6 corded silky tying and untying using mostly lizbeth threads
