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

1st September is officially the first day of Spring, so it's fitting that our first lamb was born overnight, and the apricot tree is full of blossom. The apricot tree has no leaves yet, of course, I'll have to lend it some of my tatted leaves. These are numbers 66 and 67:
This is my second attempt at 66 and it still doesn't look like the picture in the book, I'm not sure why. These leaves, like several of the others, use pearl tatting, where the middle thread emerges to be used for the leaf outline. Clever.
