Green Leaf is Finished
This leaf is made with 30wt Blendables, Lime Sherbet color 433 4017. I still have tension problems, but I can see progress from section to section. My topstitching continues to improve. I used 2 strands of white #80 tatting thread, and I cannot see even tiny peek of white through my cordonnette.
This thread is similar to 16 pearl cotton. Can you see the twist in the stem? I could have flattened it out with a little blocking, but I took a picture as soon as it was off the base.
This pattern is The Guild of Needlelaces Challenge for 2010. This leaf is at 100%, almost 4" from the top to the end of the stem. I have another one started, this one at 75%, just to give me practice in filling smaller spaces. We'll see how it goes.
