At last!



I can't believe how long it's taken me to finish this doily, but it's done and I'm very pleased with it!

Mom's Pink Doily is a free pattern from Nancy Tracy at be-stitched.com. Mine is obviously not pink, but size 20 Lizbeth, Leafy Greens. It's a little over 10" across. 

Daughter Joanne requested this doily at least three years ago. It's really a very simple pattern to follow. I got hung up on round 4 because of all the individual medallions. Once I got into the groove (making sure I joined in the correct spot), I found that round 4 was really very simple. Round 6 just took a long time because it was the last round! ;-)

  7. Congrats! I think you did this very quickly! How wonderful that you have finished it. I admire your determination, considering your busy work schedule again. She'll be delighted with it! I'd actually like to try it, now that you say Round 4 was easier than you thought it would be! I need a 'non-stressful' repetitive project to work on and to use up some thread.

  10. Simply Gorgeous Diane! May be inspiration enough to get me tatting again ... a PHD (project half done)is begging to be finished - simple, elegant but untouched for 2 years. Congratulations on completing this one.
