contagious

It's better to keep away from crazy tatters - madness could be contagious - but you simply can't, if they're sweet and so kind with you. So it happens with Maria.

She came for a couple of days to my town and gave me a wonderful thread - she said - that she was very confident that I could have liked tatting with.

Mad woman! (I know you're there reading!) It is Maidera Polyneon, 100% polyester, very thin embroidery thread. Tatting with it it's a true madness!! And what if I need to retrotat? Shivers down the back...

It is very strong, I've read that it's also resistant to chlorine bleach. Anyway, it is beautiful coloured and shining and I can't disappoint her, she is always very nice, she never forget to give me even a little gift. Thank you, dear friend!

Pattern is from a publication that I've had for many years, it was the first and only one tatting book that I had got for ages. I already tatted the doily some years ago using dmc size 80 thread, ecru and light blue.

Ciao,
Ninetta

  3. Both of them are very pretty. The new thread is a lovely color. I love using tiny threads, but polyester is often very difficult to tat with.
