An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

When I saw hyperbolic tatting on In Tatters, I thought, 'This I must try'. I downloaded Patty Dowden's PDF article about it and read it through. I have to say I'm not a mathematician, so I'm approaching this from a purely aesthetic viewpoint - I don't know exactly how it works, but I think it looks wonderful. Then I added beads:
The beads I used are a little too heavy for the thread, but even so, I love the result. It looks like a carnation. I'm still playing with the technique, but I'm counting it as number 16 of my 25 Motif Challenge.
