Miranda's "Tat This!" Challenge ~ Complete!

I finished! I'm so excited! I really like the way this doily turned out. I think I may try it again with some different stitch counts. I did make a few mistakes, but they were ones that weren't obvious until I went to tat the next round, and I wasn't about to snip or retro-tat for minor errors in stitch counts.

Here's my finished piece in size 20 Lizbeth, color #163, Blue Ice. It measures 6" across.

This is the picture Miranda posted, the only "pattern" available. I chose to tat 10 rings in the center instead of 8. I think I may try 8 the next time. Now I'm waiting for the fabric to arrive so that I can make a matching Origami pouch!

Thanks for the "Tat This!" Challenge, Miranda! I really enjoyed this project!

Note: I just read on Miranda's blog that this doily is actually the first three rounds of Mom's Doily by Nancy Tracy. Thank you, Nancy, for sharing your wonderful designs! I hope I've represented your pattern in a way that pleases you.
