Well, I successfully cut out and replaced the offending section and declared that the center of this doily looked much better! Then, much to my dismay, I discovered that I had tatted another section incorrectly. Not a big deal... I've become a pro at cutting out offending sections! Alas, when I cut that section out I discovered that I was missing two picots that I needed for joining. I'm sure there is someone in tat-land who can see where I made do, but I'm not going to worry about it.
As mentioned earlier, I headed for my Lizbeth stash to find a coordinating color for the next round. Believe it or not, I did not have the correct color! Horrors! I had to order more thread! It should arrive today or tomorrow. In the meantime, I've started tatting the center again, this time starting my ring at a different color section. I just want to see how different it will look.
I probably won't get any more tatting done until next week. It's play weekend! Daughter Carol is directing Back to the 80s: the Totally Awesome Musical! I got a bit of a sneak preview last night when I drove in to mend a dress. There is a lot of excitement about this production. Dessert theater tickets sold out! In fact they over-sold, and Carol had to borrow tables, dishes, and flatware. Tonight I'll go in early to take backstage pictures. Tomorrow morning we'll set up for the dessert theater. Some friends are coming down for tomorrow night's performance. Then on Sunday, daughter Alison and her family will be coming down. I guess I should have done my laundry last night... there sure won't be much time over the weekend!
