Doily back from UFO town

Ages ago, I started this oval doily in size 30 thread. It was so long ago that I had cut the ongoing thread to get the shuttles back and use them on other projects, and this was way before the long tatting hiatus.

So I had to tat about 1/3 of the last round, and only at the end did I notice that I had worked the wrong way. But honnestly, the knots are so fine that you don't really see the difference.

I still have 2 rounds of trefoils to do...

Space dyed classic doily finished

I've been silent for a little while, but it was because I didn't want to post pictures daily with just a few more rosettes each time. So here is the final picture, after blocking. It was a nice doily to tat, the only thing was the 16 rosettes around. The nightmare was all those threads to tie and hide !

Now I'm tatting some more square motifs...

Square tatted motif

Tatting is a great craft to do on the go. All you need is shuttles in a small box, and scissors.  But what happens when you tat a doily, and it doesn't fit the box anymore ?

Time for a little motif ! This 8ne is still from the New Tatting book. I will have to make several joined together to make a doily or something.

Doily update : 5 more rosettes to go...

Doily update

Ah, glorious times, I post about once a day... from the lovely galaxy tab I use for almost everything. No, it doesn't cook toasts yet... I'm also enjoying Instagram more and more. It's so much fun !

Anyway,  this is a picture update, I'm on the last round of the doily, and it's basically many mini motifs joined to the centre. Many opportunities to do it wrong.... so I have to pay special attention. It also looks like it's flattening by itself somehow...

Space dyed classic doily progress

Here are pictures of my progress on the doily from the book New Tatting I really enjoy this, it's so lovely But after round 5, you can see that it's a bit ruffled Now I need to make something like 16 rosettes joined around the doily.
