Tatting A Hankie

This is definitely not a project that I will be taking along to appointments.  This is by far the thinnest thread I have worked with so far.  After two stores, I finally found #80 thread for this project.  

I crocheted the edge with vintage thread I had on hand, and it is thicker than the #80 thread.

My 14 year-old daughter took a look and said, "is that all you got done?"


Yep.  That's all I got done today.

And I have a feeling I will need to make a few more hankies to get them exactly right.

After that, I want to make a pair or turtle earrings for another daughter's birthday present.  This is very tedious work, working with #80 thread.

I would be cross-eyed from using that fine a thread! Your work is beautiful!
