What are you most proud of? This is my first completed tatting project, small as it is. I figure that's worth something, especially since it's so cute!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? While you are making each of the rings, stop after each double stitch and make sure that you can still pull the ring thread and adjust the size; that will keep you from discovering at the very last stitch of the ring that you can't close it because you missed a flipped stitch at some point. When you're a beginner (like me!), taking that extra time and care to get it right eliminates a lot of frustration and needless errors.
