Hangin' off the edge!


My blue doily has grown to the point where it hangs off the edge of my computer! This round was the most difficult for me for one reason only... each of those little flower motifs cupped terribly. Thank goodness for Best Press and a little shot of steam! If I had noticed the cupping while I was tatting, I think I would have increased the stitch count from 3 to 5 on the short chain either side of the flower.

Still, I can't complain. All worked out well, and the good news is... I only have two rounds left! Time to wind the shuttles!

  8. I certainly echo all of the other comments!

    I was wondering how this doily would be completed, and I see there's a repeat of 'daisy' images in the outer rounds. There seem to be thrown-off rings for half the 'daisy'motif, later connected by 'normal' rings, creating the 'full' daisy.

    A very clever and attractive design, and you have tatted it beautifully!

  9. Me again! I see I totally missed the fact that you have two more rounds to go! I discovered that when I read Jeff's update to the 25-Motif (so nice that he's helping Sharon out!). Your doily seemed finished to me, so it will be interesting to see it completed!

    I think I was rattled by the fact that the photos on all blogs are being displayed differently now! Not sure I'm happy about it!
