I've never really thought about tatting 'Onion Rings' before - I've just followed the pattern and they seemed to work out right. However, when tatting this pattern I realized I was doing my own thing to get them to work and not actually reversing when the pattern said I should. Hhhhhmmmm.

I continued and finished this bookmark anyway, with numerous little snafus that I won't point out! But it has prompted me to start a little studying of onion rings. I've only reviewed a couple of links so far, but I intend to look a little further. At this point, it appears that there are actually several types of onion rings with as many methods. Any insight would be appreciated.
I love this "Lava" colorway! I also wondered as I was tatting away, if an experienced tatter would recognize where the colors change and see that I didn't necessarily do it "right". I wouldn't notice such a thing at my level of tatting, but do other tatters see it? I think this is a 'perfectionist' type thought :) Oh well! A non-tatter will never know the difference.

I've also been attacked by starving mosquitos while picking fresh strawberries. I survived, and made strawberry rhubarb jam and some fresh bread. Yum!
My flower "pot" is beautiful this year:
Unfortunately, the deer that pass through the yard have found petunias to be delicious!
