Two days ago I completed Jan’s doily ll- from his book: Tatting theory and patterns. There have been a few questions about blocking on face book, so here is a picture of the doily that I have just sprayed with water and pinned out to dry- blocked!
This doily was a challenge for me. The instructions were a bit different to the traditional patterns I have become used to. It took me far longer to remember the repeats than usual, and so progress was slow and there was a fair bit of retro tatting and cutting away. I do like the colours though, Altin basak blue (no. 343, size 50) and ecru. I doubt I will make this again, but am very glad to be finished it.
I an loking forward to making some smaller items, and perhaps taking part in a tat-along too.
I wonder, what project were you glad to finish?
Until next time, happy tatting
