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

This is motif 6 from The Tatted Artistry of Teiko Fujito. I had a couple of false starts on this one. On my first attempt to tat the motif, there was no way I could 'square the circle'; there was a big gap between last ring and first. I adjusted the length of the picots and bare spaces are tried again. Fine. I did two motifs and then realised I didn't have enough matching thread for 8 motifs. I could've joined the motifs in a different way, but I rather like this arrangement shown in the book, it's unusual. So I started again. I like it. This is the last of the 'one shuttle only' motifs, I think.
