I started with size 3 crochet cotton & large tatsy shuttle
Last night, I did ok with DMC 80 tatting thread
I tried reverse with rings & chains
(size 10 crochet cotton)
First attempt very uneven
Joining slows me down - still need to look at instructions & pictures to get it right
Improved when I tried again ... still needing practice

My desk is littered with butterflies, shuttles & books!
Colorful & delightful!

I hope to get good enough to manage
a bookmark - bought the book at
House of Stitches

You are doing GREAT!!! That is such a SWEET little butterfly and your rings and chains look really nice! I don't have Tatted Bookmarks - the crosses on the cover are beautiful.
