This is the latest version of my Daisy Wheel Doily. I used white for the first two rounds and then a variegated yellow. The thread is Flora 20. In this case, I think the variegated thread adds to the design, instead of taking it over, as it can do.
I taught myself to tat from books, as a teenager, but had never met another tatter. Joining on-line groups has given me a new enthusiasm for the art, and enabled me to learn new techniques. I have even tried my hand at designing.
Any diagrams for working these tatted pieces are on my website www.handicrafts.org.uk
