This is a pattern by Nancy Tracy at Be-Stitched. It has long picots that are frayed. I hate the fraying part but love the result.
The threads, Rhubarb Pie & Celery, are by Marilee. (Yarnplayer)
The pattern is easy but I didn't read it closely enough. The chains outlining the center ring are supposed to be joined at the last picot in each segment but I missed that until I was done with the flower. Oops! So you can see some chain picots between the frayed segments. One of the problems with being an "experienced" tatter is that you become a know-it-all and jump to conclusions about how something is done without really paying attention to the instructions. I do it all the time and then I pay! I try to keep that tendency in mind when I test tat but it still gets the best of me sometimes.
Another very pleasant day here. It stormed fiercely last night but didn't last long. I heard of trees and a barn being felled as a result but haven't followed up to see if anything else big happened. No injuries as far as I know.
