I finished round 7! The doily is now 17" across, the largest piece I've ever tatted.
Here it is on the dining room table, with lots of glare from the chandelier.
There's a little less glare with the table pad.
Now for the decision... do I stop here or go on? I can't help but wonder how I will manage to block this if I make it through 18 rounds, and then there's the question of where I'll use it. It is pretty as it is, but I'm kind of looking forward to seeing how large this will be. I think I'll go on!
