Well...it's finally finished and I think it looks pretty good. It's the Loop-di-Loop Tatted Doily designed by Hartmut Haas found on this site http://www.freepatterns.com/list.html?mode=list&offset=21&limit=21&status_id=A&criteria=doilhome . It is done in Lizbeth Caribbean size 20. I believe my mother-in-law will love it, and instead of it being for Christmas I think it will be her home-warming gift since she is moving next week. What a way to brighten a new place :) .
This next picture is the cool shadow I was seeing while finishing the doily.
