A motif at a time....................

Almost have both side of the current length done, 
but I also have to extend this about double it's size 
 I was asked how many balls of thread I had already 
used, well.....I actually bought this Aunt Lydia's huge 
ball of thread when I first started tatting because it 
was the only available thread here in town, and being 
new to tatting at that time I just bought what I could.  
It was intended for tons of tatted snowflakes, until 
I found Lizbeth thread and lots of fun colors which 
put snowflakes on the side for all kinds of other 
interesting projects!!  
Well, I have 2 of these huge balls of white thread, 
and this is the one that has been used the most and 
you can see it still have a ton of thread on it(thank-
fully, so I don't have to buy more for this project 
any time soon!).  And I set my Tatsy shuttle up 
next to it to show how large it is.
Have a fabulous tatting time!!!  :)

I remember buying huge balls of Aunt Lydia's! I was always amazed at how many doilies I could crochet from one ball. I'm sure I still have some hidden around here!
