Another Twin Cathedral Doilies update

Here they are again.  Ready for row 30 of 33.
Again, they are tatted in size 40 Lizbeth 
Rainbow Taffy.
They are sitting on a table which is 4ft. by 2ft.
so...they are almost 2ft. wide.
 I wanted a way to set short goals for myself to help 
complete them quicker.  I think I found the right thing 
to help.  These are Stitchpins (Susan Bates brand)-I 
found them at Hobby Lobby and thought they would 
help me.  I didn't know how many chains around the 
rows until I placed these pins every 10 and there are 
96 chains to tat!!!!  But, I try to tat 10 at a time and 
it seems to help me get through it much quicker than
just tatting along.
 Also, I had mentioned that our daughter is part of 
a Pirate Crew and wants to bring things to sell when 
they have a vending event, so to add something to 
tat for change of pace and color I tatted this cuff 
bracelet.  I just made up the design hoping some 
pirate lady will like it for an addition to her costume.
And, I have another in mind.
Hope you have a wonderful day and achieve some 
tatting too!!! :)

I find it good to set mini goals on a big project too. Makes it more manageable, and that's quite a task you're working on there! Love the bracelet, I hope the right pirate lady desires it!

I love marking goals this way it really works for me too. This pattern you made up is beautiful I like the no picots at times just has a great look😁

Mini goals are a great way to get work done! You do know how to extend the mystery of the final round, though :-P
1 question - are you climbing out with split chains or starting each round afresh?

God's Kid said...

Thank you both very much!! :)
muskaan, I cut and start fresh each row. I really haven't done split chains and like split rings if they are not in the pattern I have a hard time figuring how to use them(bead placements are enough of a challenge for me). ;)

Madtatter80, I figured that Pirates might not be ones to wear decorative picots(maybe). ;)
