I usually tat the pattern in thread I consider “waste thread” just to practice and see what I need to be careful with. I usually use this trial run to figure out how much thread to put on the shuttles and such. Well, this time I really messed up the math. I tatted the sample, did some figuring, wound my shuttles, tatted away, and………Ran out of thread!!
So, I’m off to finish tatting and blocking and scanning and packing it away safely until I finish the rest of the binder. Whew! It’s a really good thing I have all the time I need to complete the patterns in the binder!
