My Tatting doily

I have made this doily using thread size 20, and one shuttle out of ball in first stage. In second stage I have used two shuttles. This stage was really tricky- for me- As I have made each flower with its leaves one by one, and joined that flowers with first stage. The last stage of doing it was the edge with one shuttle out of ball again.  the edge was two rounds. The first one was wide, and make the doily ruffled!!! The second round makes it just nice edge as it narrowed that ruffles.It is middle size doily -about 43 cm across.
Here are its pictures (the only mistake I did when I get its final picture  is ,I got it AFTER I wash it) I didn't block it well so its final picture was not good as it is in a real)

 Another bad picture lol

Here is the second stage of doing the flowers with their leaves.

Flower snowflake tatting motif

I have made this motif using thread size 40, and one shuttle out of ball when I did the flower, and two shuttles when I did the edge. I LOVED working with fine thread more. It is very easy, and comfortable. They always said that beginner should use bigger thread to learn, I agree with them , but want to add that  you need bigger thread to "SEE" what you are learning NOT because it is easier  to deal with bigger thread, and bigger needle or hook.

From my little experience, and through my learning I have used thread size 10, 20, 30, 40, and believe me the more I go through finer thread the easier I tat. It happened the same with me when I  crocheted, and even knitted . So when I use finer crochet hook, and very finest thread like thread size 100 it was easier for me.

so what is the easier aspects of working with fine thread, and fine hook or needle??!!!
First , it is so so light to carry that fine hook or needle, and also that fine thread.
Second , it will give you better results specially with tatting, and crochet.
Third , it  will be easier to mange that fine thread , and it will be easier to finish your stitch.
Forth, you will get so so nice delicate , and lacy work so you will LOVE the results more.

Now here are the picture of my new motif,

 Another picture of it
I love my stitches more in this motif.

Happy tatting for you all.
