Ok....for as simple as this doily should be there are
a few structural challenges for me(mainly the clover rounds
which seem to be tight), but the biggest challenge is my
hubby. He is a truck driver so he is usually gone a lot, but
his new job is not keeping him busy so money is low, but
that isn't my problem.....my problem is that he is home and
I can't get time to work on this doily with him here!!!
So.....since I knew he is out for at least 4 hours today
I finished this round which has taken far longer than
it should have. I believe there are 2 or 3 more rounds
to completion, and a ton of blocking!!!!
It's already over 15 inches across.
Next, I was playing this weekend with size 3 thread.
The pattern is Carnival from Mary Konior's Tatting with
Visual Patterns. The thread is Pretty as a Rainbow HDT from CustomCottonEtc.
Here is a size comparison with a size 100
Rainbow Bright HDT from Tatskool,Carnival motif,
which was tatted years ago.
The smaller one has better color in this picture.
And this picture shows the colors in the larger one better.
I also started a spinning wheel glass mat, but I know there
is not enough thread to complete it so...It's just a very large
doodle. :) Maybe I will show the picture later.
Have a wonderful day and may tatting fill a space in it!!! :)
