Pattern: Motif 13 from the book The Tatted Artistry Of Teiko Fujito by Teiko Fujito
Thread: (Lizbeth 40, col 613, golden yellow medium)
Technique: shuttle tatting

It took blocking to get this to lay completely flat but I think I could have avoided that by making the picots slightly larger. This one measures about 5cm across.

I really want to get my teeth into a larger project but I can't seem to find one that's within range of the skills I have. Rather, I can't find one that I like.

I know exactly what you mean about a larger project. I'm looking for one too - one tatted and one crochet actually... All I can think at the moment is to tatt one of the 'tiled' (if you know what I mean) projects from the Mary Konior book, but... I'd like to do something that is different on each round, i think.

Let me know if you find anything! Did you decide on a book for your birthday? (Happy birthday!)

If I find anything good I'll certainly pass it on but so far I haven't found what I'm looking for. I did consider trying this one because I've seen versions of it that were very pretty but I haven't decided which colours to try yet.

My birthday book is on order but there was a delay from Roseground so probably won't arrive for another couple of days. My own fault for not deciding what I wanted till the day before. I went for Tatted Fashion by Teiko Fujito.
