Rick Rack Anyone?

OK, I'm a terrible blogger.  I just haven't had much to say.  Lately there has been more knitting than tatting, and more sheer laziness than there should be.

My recent tatting forays, such as they are, have been playing with rick rack.  I think it has quite a fun look to it.  I've done just a little research and was delighted to find my beloved Mrs. Mee tatting with rick rack in 1867.  

I'm a little disappointed to find the rick rack available in local stores is a little less dainty than the vintage packs I have, which has led to having to rewrite patterns.  What brand of rick rack do you have in your stores?  Is anyone interested in a book of rick rack tatting patterns?

I'm off to Finger Lakes soon.  I haven't packed. I'm not ready!!! Hope to see many of you there.
