I'm still on the tatting run, and here's what I've been doing.
The earrings are made with #30 thread, the two snowflakes on the left are made with #40 thread (from published patterns), and the two pieces on the right are made with #100 thread.
Because I am just that insane.
I think the one on the top right will grow up to be a larger doily, but I'm designing it as I go along and I'm not really sure where it wants to go from here. Who knows, maybe it will just stay where it is and become a Christmas tree ornament. The one on the bottom right was the first round of a snowflake designing experiment that went badly awry; the second round didn't work out at all so I cut it off, but the first round was nice and will be used for another try.
Tatting with super fine thread is actually easier than crocheting with the same thread, I think. You don't have to get a hook into the teeny tiny stitches with tatting, except to join in the picots which is entirely manageable.
And here's a random garden picture- the first Clark's Heavenly Blue morning glory opened today. Isn't it beautiful! I'm a little disappointed that the morning glories didn't take off like I had hoped they would. I think the spot where I planted them just gets too hot.
